Discover the top 10 priciest streets in London and outside the capital, from Kensington Palace Gardens to Montrose Gardens.
The 10 most expensive streets in Britain can all be found in London, with Kensington Palace Gardens crowned the priciest UK road for the 12th consecutive year.
Houses on the tree-lined avenue cost an average of £35.9m, according to our latest research on the most expensive streets in Britain.
Outside of the capital, the South-east of England dominates, with eight out of the top 10 priciest streets outside of London located in Surrey.
Gráinne Gilmore, Head of Research at Zoopla comments: “Our data shows where housing stock and prime locations converge to create some of the most expensive addresses in the UK. Clusters of expensive homes are not unusual as the cachet of an area starts to create an appeal of its own, which can factor into what a home is really worth.
“London dominates the country's prime property market, but it is being challenged by the South East in terms of the number of million-pound streets, reflecting the rise in demand and pricing seen in this market, as well as its housing stock mix and its geographical size.”
