The British invimagesasion of Manila between 1762 and 1764 was an episode in Philippine colonial history when the British Empire occupied the Spanish colonial capital of Manila and the nearby port of Cavite. The resistance from the provisional Spanish colonial government established by members of the Royal Audience of Manila and their Filipino allies prevented British forces from taking control of territory beyond the neighbouring towns of Manila and Cavite. The British occupation was ended as part of the peace settlement of the Seven Years’ War.
