London's Hidden Gems | No.10 Adam Street

The main reason No.10 Adam Street is a pretty good secret find in London is due to its striking resemblance to No.10 Downing Street - the home of our Prime Minister. Get a photo here and you can pretend you’ve been to the famous residence yourself. Adam Street is located just half a mile away from 10 Downing Street in The Strand.

Designed by 18th century architect Robert Adam, after whom the Street is named, as part of a London district known as “Adelphi”. With its name derived from the Greek for “brothers”, this area as it stands today is the legacy of three architect-siblings, the Adam brothers, whose work shaped and dominated this area. Construction work for the development began in 1768, the real Downing Street being renovated between 1766 and 1772.
