Bush House is a Grade II listed building located within the Strand Campus at King's College London. It was originally conceived as a major new trade center by American industrialist Irving T. Bush, and a centrepiece to the Kingsway and Aldwych redevelopment project of the early 20s.

Its construction commenced in 1924 and by 1929 Bush House was already declared the "most expensive building in the world", construction finished in 1935. Several years following its completion, Bush House served as the headquarters of the BBC World Service. Broadcasting from Bush House lasted for 70 years, from winter 1941 to summer 2012.
