Downing Street, London
Downing Street: Visit one of the most famous front doors in the world
Home to the prime minister and chancellor of the exchequer, Downing Street is located in Westminster, close to the Houses of Parliament. Perhaps one of the most famous door in the world, the black-fronted Number 10 is the Executive headquarters, where the cabinet meets to discuss the UK's biggest issues, create new policy and set the year's budget. Traditionally, the prime minister also lives in the flat above Number 10, although since Tony Blair had such a large family, the prime minister now spreads to next door as well. While the public cannot get to look around Number 10 or walk down Downing Street, you can get a good view from the top gates and maybe even catch a glimpse of the prime minister outside the front door. Here you can also visit the Cenotaph on Whitehall, the burial site of the Unknown Soldier, who is commemorated every year on Remembrance Sunday. Downing Street is also close to other major London sights such as the Cabinet War Rooms and Westminster Abbey.
