Revealed: the UK’s most expensive streets for house prices

Find out the priciest roads in every part of England, Wales and Scotland

As you turn off the busy High Street Kensington and swing past the iconic Design Museum, flanked by the luscious greenery of Holland Park, you’ll find yourself in Ilchester Place – a street replete with 18th-century architecture and officially the most expensive street in Britain. 

New research from Lloyds Bank has revealed that the average house price on Ilchester Place – the exclusive part of Kensington and Chelsea which is home to Robbie Williams and Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page – is a staggering £15.6m.

Nine out of the 10 most-expensive streets in the nation are found in London, but it’s not just in the capital where multi-million pound properties can be found.

Read on to discover the most expensive streets in England, Wales and Scotland.

London house prices dominate the top 10

If you’ve got at least £9m to spare, you could buy yourself a place on the swankiest streets in Kensington and Chelsea or Westminster.

Following Ilchester Place, the average property in Eaton Square in Westminster comes in at a cool £13.7m, while a property on Knightsbridge will set you back £13.3m. But if you want to bag a bargain on one of London’s most expensive streets, Astons Road in Northwood, just past Ruislip, will only cost you £4m.

Rounding out the UK’s top 10 is Camp End Road in Weybridge, in the South East – a 25-minute train ride from London. Weybridge is inhabited by many Chelsea footballers, and was home to Beatles John Lennon and George Harrison. The average property in Camps End Road is £5.6m.

Here are the top-10 most expensive streets in the UK.
