What people are saying:

The "Dagou" in "Dagou British Consulate" is a transliteration of the language of the aboriginals of Taiwan. It actually represents a place name. It means that the British consulate is in the place of "Dagou". I personally feel that it is worth visiting. History.

    Panorama (from top)

    At lower entrance (by waterfront), you see exhibits from the old days. Climb up steep steps (hard workout) on hill to reach top portion and get nice panorama of harbor.

Additional Information


The British Consulate is located in the sea and sky of the West Bay. The entire British Consulate is divided into two parts, the Hill Residence and the Yamashita Consulate. The official residence on the hill is a Baroque architecture in the post-Renaissance era. The appearance of red bricks, bamboo downpipes, stone carvings and arches reflect the differences between the British consulates. The first floor of the bureaucracy includes a small shop, a viewing platform and a courtyard. Standing on the viewing platform, you can see the process of the sunset. There is an exhibition room on the second floor. The model and the old map are used to make visitors feel the rich story of Kaohsiung opening for more than 100 years.
