White House History

George Washington selected the site of this amazing edifice, which was built between 1792 and 1800. After being set on fire by the British Army during the War of 1812, the White House was quickly restored and has been continuously updated ever since.

Visiting the White House

It’s easy to visit the outside of the White House, which is easy to find alongside the National Mall. However if you wish to go inside, you must pre-arrange a tour through your Member of Congress.


  • How do I book the White House tours?

    You must submit a tour request through your Member of Congress. Tours are free but they must be arranged in advance. Tours are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis, and must be booked at least 21 days before you plan to visit the White House.
  • What’s the easiest way to get there?

    Taxis or public transit is the easiest way to reach the White House, because parking in the area is limited. You can travel by bus, subway or train to the White House, located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
