Downing Street is one of London’s most famous streets, particularly number 10 which is home of the British Prime Minister. It is located in Whitehall, just a few minutes away from the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace and St James’s Park. 11 Downing Street is the home of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, and number 12 houses the Prime Minister’s press office. In 1989, a large black metallic fence was built at the entrance to Downing Street to protect the Prime Minister from terrorist attacks.
