Stratton House

This building (on the top three floors) housed the entire Dutch government-in-exile and Radio Oranje. Due to the growth in the number of Dutch officials who had fled, they had to move. The Ministries of Shipping, Foreign Affairs and Information kept Stratton House as the center of the Dutch community in England.

The Dutch government used the building between May 1940 and August 1945. A plaque attached to the building is dedicated to the building's history during that time.
