Oxford High Street.

Broad Street, Oxford, on a late summer evening with the sun catching on the stonework.

heh

Good call on both of those -- Oxford looks good in almost any weather.

Watergate Street, Chester has a fine collection of unusual shops and businesses on split levels via The Rows.

Elm Hill in Norwich.

Christmas Steps in Bristol.

Great Pulteney Street, Bath

Cockburn Street, Edinburgh

Shakedown Street.

Used to be the heart of town.

FleurDuMal - 22 Aug 2019 14:22:12 (#10 of 96)

Grey Street in Newcastle.

Grey Street looks nice but is fantastically dull. Corporate middle-market chain restaurants, a character-free pub and a few surviving banks. And the Theatre Royal with back-to-back musicals.

What about St George's Terrace in Jesmond, home of the fantastically 70s library and esmond wimming oo.

FrankieTeardrop - 22 Aug 2019 15:17:56 (#13 of 96)

William Brown Street in Liverpool

JennyRad - 22 Aug 2019 20:41:47 (#14 of 96)

Elvet Bridge in Durham.

Stellata - 22 Aug 2019 20:47:28 (#15 of 96)

Fawcett Street in Sunderland. Well, a long time ago anyway.

guigal - 22 Aug 2019 20:50:59 (#16 of 96)

Princes Street, Edinburgh. That will be hard to beat.

carterbrandon - 22 Aug 2019 21:03:55 (#17 of 96)

Harborne High Street in Birmingham used to be my favourite, but then the 80s and everything since happened to it. Now it is Cunt Central.

FGBFGB - 22 Aug 2019 21:17:03 (#18 of 96)

Princes Street: wonderful views, grim architecture (mostly), tatty souvenir tat shops and general retail humdrumery (mostly).

darkhorse - 22 Aug 2019 21:22:11 (#19 of 96)

I would certainly love to visit esmond wimming oo.

Talking of Jesmond, I remember I had a mate who lived in Lansdowne Gardens (had to look at a map to check the name).

Overlooking the Dene, you just stepped over the road to an unfenced park. Great in the summer.
