Downing Street in London, England, has for more than three hundred years housed the official residences of two of the most senior British Cabinet ministers: the First Lord of the Treasury, an office now synonymous with that of Prime Minister of the United Kingdom; and the Second Lord of the Treasury, an office held by the Chancellor of the Exchequer. The Prime Minister's official residence is 10 Downing Street; the Chancellor's official residence is next door at Number 11. The Government's Chief Whip has an official residence at Number 12, though the current Chief Whip's residence is at Number 9.Downing Street is located in Whitehall in central London, a few minutes' walk from the Houses of Parliament and a little farther from Buckingham Palace. The street was built in the 1680s by Sir George Downing (1632–1689), on the site of a mansion called Hampden House. The houses on the south side of the street were demolished in the nineteenth century to make way for government offices, now occupied by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. "Downing Street" is often used as a metonym for the Government of the United Kingdom.

  • The most famous address in London after Baker Street 221b. The entrance to the Prime Minister's residence is located between the two houses in a narrow, peregoroženo they all fences and guarded by several police dežurâŝimi, so ničegošen′ki is not visible. Sense to look at the door with a few fences no no, so the attraction it is purely formal. You can check out if you just past the rundown.

  • Downing Street is located in the city of London in Westminster. It is a small block from Whitehall, midway between Parliament Square and Trafalgar Square. The British Prime Minister is here in a nondescript House. Many years ago we have can to see much more during a visit here. Since then, the world has changed unfortunately. Due to the necessary security measures, the visibility is very limited. Conclusion: Include a brief visit, much to see there but no longer.

  • David Cameron is number because he and the Conservative party brought this great Britian back from Hell and the conservatives all ways do. I wish the Brois Johnson takes over leader of the Conservative party because he was the best when comming out of the EU, plus Brois Johnson has a very good sense of humour. All I can say is a big up WELL DONE David Cameron also to the Iron Lady and Brois Johnson and the Labour we'll never come close too the Conservative party.
  • I remember as a kid, being allowed to walk about in downing street. Back before the political class made themselves so incredibly unpopular that they felt the need for massive armed protection and unbelievably expensive security arrangements (which us taxpayers pay for) If you don't want people throwing eggs at you, try not being a dick...
