Take a Tour of 10 Downing Street with Google

Google is known by most as the route to the unknown on the internet. Their ‘mission statement’ is to:

Organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful…

Whether that information is websites, scholarly journals, books or maps, Google wants to help the world find what they’re looking for (making a few bucks along the way).

Their most recent foray into accessibility has seen the use of their Maps technology to host interactive online tours as part of their Arts & Culture initiative. This has seen pieces of art, exhibitions and historic buildings opened up for the general population to explore online.

So now you can go behind the famous black gloss door of 10 Downing Street here, from the portrait lined staircase, to The Thatcher Room (yes, that’s an actual room!)

Here are some pics we snapped whilst having a virtual walk around…

The Chromologist


The Chromologist is a colour whisperer. He understands and knows them better than they know themselves, translating their pleas to be used beautifully for humankind. It's unknown from whence he came. Some say the fraction of space between a prism and a spectrum, others say he toiled in the fabled colour mines of Svalbard for years untold, deep underground, speaking only to the reds and blues, cerises and aquas, bronze and golds...
