    Can't really see much, due to security... the "famous door" is quite far down and it's hard to see it, even standing at the edge of the fence looking down the street- at an angle

    Not quite as easy to see it as portrayed on television and movies. I am sure if you made loud noises and begin running, you would get an insiders view and a deportation asap.

    It has served as the prime minister’s home sporadically since 1735 and continuously since 1902. Apart from living quarters, it includes state drawing and dining rooms for hosting dignitaries

    Don't try and drive up this street without permission; you won't get a ticket, you'll get four flat tyres and a semi automatic rifle pointed at you!
