Check out 10 Downing Street on Street View for the first time ever

Ever wanted to have a nose around the Prime Minister’s house? Well now you can…

Google has finally snapped the interior of 10 Downing Street for Street View, opening up the hallowed Prime ministerial residence on the service for the first time ever. Starting today, you’ll be able to tour the 332-year-old building, which is (unsurprisingly) generally closed to the public.

Using Street View, you can check out areas like the Thatcher Room, the Cabinet room, and even the rose garden, as they were in January 2016. Check it out:

The actual Downing Street road first arrived on Google Street View back in 2012, giving users a glimpse of the Prime Minister’s famous front door. The White House is also available to view on Street View, with the interior on show via Google Art.

Interestingly, although 10 Downing Street has technically been home to every Prime Minister since 1735, it’s not actually occupied by current UK Prime Minister Theresa May. Due to the size of her family, she’s swapped with Philip Hammond, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, who would normally reside in Number 11. It follows a precedent first set by Tony Blair in 1997, and one followed by David Cameron in 2010.
