- Residence of the Prime Minister
- The street is closed to the public
- A frequent stop for visiting dignitaries
Number 10 Downing Street is the official residence of the British Prime Minister.
Located just off Whitehall, it's a stone's throw away from the Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace. Behind the famous black door, Number 10 is actually made up of two houses joined together, a small terrace house at the front and a much grander building behind, which overlooks Horse Guards Parade.
Today the residence is an office for the Prime Minister, a meeting place for the Cabinet, a venue for state events, and, in a private flat on the second floor, a home for the Prime Minister’s family. Downing Street is closed to the public.
