The survey to uncover the nation's most charming streets was carried out by National Express in a bid to encourage Brits to try somewhere new this Easter weekend.

Spokesman 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.

"A long Bank Holiday weekend is right up everybody's street so we thought the time was ripe to reveal the UK's prettiest to inspire people to take somewhere new in their stride this Easter."
