No 10 Downing Street - Home of British Prime Ministers

10 Downing Street, the home and offices of British prime ministers since 1735, vies with the White House as being the most important political building anywhere in the world in the modern era. The most important decisions affecting Britain for the last 275 years have been taken behind its iconic black door.

In the 20th century alone, the First and Second World Wars were directed from within Number 10, as were the key decisions about the end of the empire, the building of the British nuclear bomb, the handling of economic crises from the Great Depression in 1929 to the great recession of today, and the building up of the welfare state.

Some of the most famous political figures of modern history have lived and worked in Number 10, including Robert Walpole, the first British Prime Minister, Pitt the Younger, Charles Grey, Benjamin Disraeli, William Gladstone, David Lloyd George, Winston Churchill, Clement Atlee, Harold Wilson and Margaret Thatcher.

Number 10 is also home to the Cabinet Office where ministers meet regularly to decide policy.

The building is much larger than it appears from its frontage. The hall with the chequered floor immediately behind the front door lets on to a warren of rooms and staircases. The house in Downing Street was joined to a more spacious and elegant building behind it in the early 18th century. Number 10 has also spread itself out to the left of the front door, and has taken over much of 12 Downing Street, which is accessed by a corridor that runs through 11 Downing Street – the official residence of the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
