The Queen will formally appoint Theresa May as his replacement
David Cameron said being prime minister had been "the greatest honour" of his life as he prepared to formally resign.
Flanked by his wife and children in Downing Street, the PM said the UK was "much stronger" than when he took over. He then went to Buckingham Palace to tender his resignation to the Queen, who will then formally appoint Theresa May as his replacement.
Earlier Mr Cameron took PMQs for the final time, telling MPs he would "miss the roar of the crowd".
After taking office, Mrs May, the home secretary, will set about naming her own frontbench team.
Before driving to Buckingham Palace, Mr Cameron spoke outside No 10, saying he had "not got every decision right" but adding: "I do believe that today, our country is much stronger."
"Politicians like to talk about policies, but in the end it's about people's lives," he said, pointing to the government's record on employment, the NHS and defence.
