Downing StreetBest known for the house at no. 10, Downing Street is at the heart of Westminster and British politics. Closed to members of the public, the entrance to Downing Street is gated and carefully guarded by armed police at all times. If you do manage to get past and glimpse inside number 10, you'll see behind the glossy black front door are grand staircases and a network of corridors joining half-a-dozen structures in Downing Street to make a large complex of offices, conference rooms, and family homes for the Prime Minister, and the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
