Project overview

The Shambles, York’s famous fourteenth century market road, has been named Britain’s prettiest street.

The street, which played host to a thriving meat market from the fourteenth to the nineteenth century, is characterised by overhanging timber-framed buildings that line the road, some of which date back over 700 years.

The Royal Mile of Edinburgh’s Old Town and the sweeping Georgian architecture of the Circus in Bath reside in second and third place in the countdown.

The survey of 1,000 people UK-wide was conducted to uncover the nation’s most charming streets in a bid to encourage people to take in somewhere new over the Easter weekend (Friday, April 14 to Monday, April 17).

National Express spokesperson, Chris Hardy, said: “We quizzed the nation, scouring the A to Z of Britain’s roads, rows, avenues and lanes to uncover the top 15 UK streets you need to see.
