The first round of Google Street View’s best street awards has been a total shambles.
Mainly because the victor of the most picturesque street in the UK category was the Shambles, an iconic little lane of shops in York city centre.
The Shambles, which is mostly filled with touristy shops selling shortbread and key-rings, features old buildings that date way back to medieval times (the fourteenth century to be precise).
As well as the most attractive street, the awards featured two further categories: The best fashion street, and the best foodie street.
And when it came to natty dressing, Milsom Street in Bath took the prize.
The foodie street award went to Stockbridge High Street in Hampshire.
What about the curry mile in Rusholme, Manchester, eh? Actually, we’ve not been there for a while, and by all accounts it’s gone right downhill…
