After a round of voting, Google Map has announced the best streets in the UK. Users helped decide the Best Foodie, Best Fashion and Most Picturesque street. Britain’s ‘Most Picturesque Street’ was awarded to The Shambles in York which Google described as:

The winning street should be uniquely British and visually charming. It could be vibrant, full of character, diverse, walker-friendly or architecturally interesting.

Despite its beauty, even this street seems to have been blighted by the recession – in Google Streetview you can spot the ‘For Let’ signs dotted along the Shambles.
