PROPERTY website Zoopla has released its annual rich list of the UK’s most expensive streets, and once again Kensington Palace Gardens in west London tops the list, with an average property value of £35.7m.

Though prospective home buyers might be encouraged to book a viewing as the average property price on the street has dropped by £2.3 million in last year!

It will come as no surprise to discover that the top ten most expensive streets in the UK are all in London.

Zoopla said there were now 14,417 streets in Britain where the average property value is £1m or more – up from 12,418 in 2016. Of those, 5,899 are in Greater London. The Yorkshire and the Humber region has 77 £1m streets, north-east England has 45 and Wales has 11.

In line with this trend, 19 of the 20 towns with the highest number of £1m-plus streets are in southern England. Guildford in Surrey takes the top spot with 204, with Reading in Berkshire in second place with 187.
