What travelers say:

Downing Street is the British Prime Minister's Office. Downing Street was built in the 1780s by a Sir named Downing. King Charles II paid for his life-saving favor, promoted him to Chancellor of the Exchequer and gave him the land. Downing built 15 small buildings here. After Downing's death, King George II gave No. 10 Downing Street to Chancellor of the Exchequer, Sir Robert Walpo, in 1732, and remained the residence of the Chancellor of the Exchequer for more than 200 years. At that time, Britain did not have a prime minister, and the Chancellor of the Exchequer was the leader of the British government. The post of Prime Minister was only established in 1937 after the passage of the King's Ministers Act, and since then 10 Downing Street has become the residence of the Prime Minister. In addition to the residence of the Prime Minister, various ministries of the British government have gathered around Downing Street. The prime minister's residence has guards guarding and iron railing gates to block tourists, but the guards are not only fierce, but also cooperate with tourists to take pictures, which also reflects the side of the prime minister's residence and the people.
