Google Arts & Culture Now Lets You Explore 10 Downing Street

Google has been adding a lot of content for people to explore through the Google Arts & Culture application, and now it's giving people the chance to explore the historical 10 Downing Street, one of the UK's most historical buildings as it's the residence and office of the Prime Minister. While the app likely won't show every single nook and cranny of the building, users will no doubt be able to explore quite a bit of the place as well as "get up close" to have a look at more than 50 pictures that are hanging on the walls of the building.

This new addition to the app follows other recent newly added experiences that have happened over the past month, like allowing users to dive into exploring the vast world of natural history and get a close view at Jurassic giants. Back at the end of August, Google added the ability to explore U.S. National Parks for a cool and unique way to experience the different parks spread across the U.S., which might be perfect for those who have not yet had the opportunity to see them in person. As for today's new addition, Google notes that you'll be able to walk through and explore sections of the building such as Margaret Thatchers office, and head down the grand main staircase.

Inside the building is also not the only area where you can explore, as you can also walk through the gardens outside. Back inside you can peer into the cabinet room if you're so inclined or take a look into the study. While 10 Downing Street can be viewed in more than a couple of ways which includes on Google Maps via the desktop browser, you can also view the building in Google's Arts & Culture app as mentioned above, and just like the other things you can explore, you can pop your smartphone into a Cardboard viewer for a more immersive virtual reality experience tat simply viewing things on the screen and moving them around with your finger or mouse. Google notes that the Arts & Culture app also hosts two more British exhibits which point out the most iconic rooms in the 10 Downing Street building, as well as introduces users to both Winston Churchill and Harold Wilson which are two of the UK's most iconic leaders.
