Knock, knock - Alternative doors to No 10 Downing Street for you to consider...

Posted 13/07/2016 by: Reeds Rains

The famous door of 10 Downing Street has been the primary residence of UK Prime Ministers since 1735. It is behind this iconic door where both history and many important decisions are made. 

Originally made of black oak, a high security replacement was installed in 1991, it is thought to be made from a bomb-proof metal with high-gloss paint – which explains why it’s so shiny. The question is how do you keep one of the most famous doors in the world in picture perfect condition? Rumour has it that somebody polishes it every few weeks with repairs and maintenance taking place during the summer when the Prime Minister is out of town. 

So whilst the door remains, David Cameron is set to leave Number 10 today and Teresa May is due to move in with Larry the cat, the official Chief Mouser at Number 10.

To mark this historic occasion we have selected some of our favourite doors from properties on the market with Reeds Rains.
