The first of a series of articles by prominent historians have been published today in the History and Tour section of the Number 10 website. Througout 2012 leading historians are giving new insight into Number 10 and the 52 past Prime Ministers. This is part of an ongoing project to add further content and detail to the History section.
New features include the virtual tour of the state rooms which has been enhanced to bring more information about the rooms to life. This includes a ghost story in the Small Dining Room, an interview with the Number 10 gardeners and art slide shows for the Cabinet Room, White Room and State Dining Room.
More content will be added throughout 2012, including an enhanced oral history programme and a partnership with the Government Art Collection bringing more of the historic art pieces held at Number 10 online.
