Downing Street

One of London's most famous addresses is No. 10 Downing Street, the terraced house that has been the residence of the Prime Minister since is was presented to Sir Robert Walpole, Britain's first Prime Minister, by George II in 1732. With No. 11, home of the Chancellor of the Exchequer since 1806, and No. 12, home of the government's Chief Whip, it is the only remaining part of the original 17th-century cul-de-sac.

The houses have been modernised over the years and are all interconnecting, housing much larger accommodation than it appears from the outside. The public have been kept at bay since 1990 when Margaret Thatcher ordered a pair of large iron gates to be installed at the junction with Whitehall, in an attempt to improve security.
