Thames House

Thames House was the headquarters of MI5, located in London. (TV: Children of Earth: Day Four)

When the 456 returned to Earth in 2009, a special tank was built to house their ambassador on the thirteenth floor. (TV: Children of Earth: Day Two) Prior to their arrival, all the children of the Earth pointed in the direction of Thames House. When the 456 ambassador arrived, a pillar of fire came down out of the sky and into the tank before disappearing, leaving the ambassador behind. The pillar of fire appeared to do no damage to Thames House despite passing through at the very least, the roof. (TV: Children of Earth: Day Three)

After Jack attacked the 456 with a reconstitution wave, the 456 ambassador began writhing in its tank in Thames House before apparently violently exploding. Before the 456's apparent death could be investigated, its remains were removed from Thames House in another pillar of fire. (TV: Children of Earth: Day Five)
