Downing Street is the street which since 1735 has contained the official residences of two of the most senior British cabinet ministers. It runs between Whitehall and St. James’s Park. The prime minister lives at No. 10, the chancellor of the Exchequer at No. 11, and the government's chief whip at No. 12. On the other side of the street is the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Some parts were rebuilt after World War II. The street was erected about 1680 by Sir George Downing (1632–1689), a diplomat under Oliver Cromwell and Charles II, where it takes its name.
