Inside the Fort San Domingo site is the 1891 Former British Consular Residence, an elegant red-brick Victorian-style house, complete with furnishings re-created from photographic records. The consulate was closed in Japanese times, then reopened after WWII until 1972 when Britain closed it down. London has recognised the PRC since 1950.

The residence is a western building that was the third consular residence (also the last one) built by Great Britain in Taiwan. The graceful building was designed by the British and built by Chinese craftsmen. The walls used Chinese red bricks and there is a Min-Nan red-tile roof, giving the entire building an exotic diverse style. The building features red bricks, arches, corridors and pitched roofs, making it a classic British Colonial-Style Building.
