The inside story

The White House is known for being the residence and workplace of every US president since 1800 when John Adams held the position. Located in Washington, D.C., the infamous site is a striking presence on Pennsylvania Avenue and hosts around 6,000 visitors a day.

It took eight years for the White House to be built, with construction beginning in 1792 and ending in 1800. Designed by Irish architect James Hoban, the presidential residence features a neoclassical style. Aquia Creek sandstone was utilized and famously painted the iconic white to construct this masterpiece.

Today, the White House consists of six floors, a total of 132 rooms, and 35 bathrooms. The complex is made up of the Executive Residence, West Wing, East Wing, the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, and a guest residence, the Blair House.

Explore the East Wing and see the numerous rooms such as the Blue Room, Red Room, Green Room. Make sure to have a good look at the marvellous White House Rose Garden. With secret service members in each room, you can ask questions to have a better understanding of each room's history and architecture.

The White House is open for tours from 7:30 am to 11:30 am Tuesday through Thursday. On Friday and Saturday, tours are available from 7:30 am to 1:30 pm, except for federal holidays.

There is no parking near the White House, so it is recommended to arrive with public transportation or by foot. Federal Triangle, Metro Center, and McPherson Square are the closest metro stations.
