Downing Street is the location of the British Prime Minister's residence at 10 Downing Street. Nothing much to see since it is guarded by a huge fence and numerous armed guards. Worth a visit if you are in the area, but don't make a special...More

You cant actually get into downing street as you might’ve expected. Huge gates, fences and armed guards protect the street. Expext big crowds outside all trying to get a photo through the fences.

I thought of paying a visit to No. 10 Downing Street after seeing the Big Ben. But there's nothing much you can get out of seeing such a sealed and protected environment

40 years between visits and you can no longer even get close ! Understandably in today's climate of Terror but the armed police presence was actually unsettling, not comfortable ?? On reflection I wouldn't take my Family anywhere near it again !!

Is this place ever open to the public for a visit just like the White House? Really nothing to see except the street plate.

It’s one of the most powerful streets in the United Kingdom. Once upon a time you could stand outside 10 Downing Street and have your photo taken but nowadays due to the increased security concerns the most you can hope for is to stand at...More

The days have long gone when you could walk down Downing Street and take a photo outside number 10. Now you peer through the gates and see precious little! Personally I wouldn’t bother with it....plenty more to see in the area.

Dependant upon the Metropolian Police security it is sometimes possible to stand outside NO.10. This is the London home of the British Prime Minister.

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham

architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
