As an Executive Agency of the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office, Wilton Park is proud to support UK foreign policy development. Wilton Park is both of government and independent from it. It occupies a position that nobody else can.

Why Wilton Park?

Our value is in convening groups from diverse backgrounds and encouraging discussions that wouldn’t otherwise take place. A space for partners to have the open, honest and frank conversations that they are rarely able to have, away from day-to-day pressures and public glare.

Diplomacy and discretion

Wilton Park represents a tradition of discreet and understated diplomacy, focused on policy impact and longevity. There are many areas of Wilton Park’s work that will always remain in the room, where national security and political sensitivity mean that the full nature of the work will never be disclosed. But make no mistake, Wilton Park has huge impact and that’s why it has extensive and longstanding relationships with partners around the world.

I have been participating in conferences at Wilton Park for more than 35 years and every one of those conferences has given me fresh insight and a better understanding of the major issues facing our world.
