Ever wondered what the inside of 10 Downing Street is like?

Until now you were not able to step across the threshold of the 332-year-old building as it is closed to the public, but now you can take a tour all from the comfort of a chair.

Virtual tourists can now navigate some of the most famous rooms and hallways inside, including the Cabinet room, the Thatcher Room – used as the late prime minister’s main office, as well as the rose garden, where David Cameron and Nick Clegg announced their coalition government.
