Cabinet Office Building


Cabinet Office Building

The Cabinet Office is a department of HM Government in the United Kingdom. It is one of the less well known offices of the government as it deals directly with the operation of the civil service as opposed to a policy area.

The building that houses the Cabinet Office is located at 70 Whitehall, adjacent to the entrance to Downing Street, and next to the Foreign Office. The Ministry of Defence is located immediately opposite.

The buildings more commonly known in Downing Street (Number 10 and Number 11) are located behind the Cabinet Office.
