The 10 most expensive streets in London

Monopoly, the 1930’s board game, famously colour-codes its 28 properties. At the business-end are the dark-blues, Park Lane and Mayfair, both yours for the princely sum of £750. Drive round the corner and pick up £200: don’t worry, it’s on the house. Unfortunately, things have somewhat changed for those now looking to buy property in these locales. Even if you get out of jail free, win the crossword competition and pick up second prize in a beauty contest, chances are you may be found wanting.

Unsurprisingly, it’s the usual suspects – Kensington and Chelsea, Belgravia and Knightsbridge – that command the highest prices in London. It is here that you will find the thirteen streets in Britain where the average house is worth over £10 million.

The coveted Kensington Palace Gardens remains Britain’s most expensive street, with residencies typically costing 162 times the value of the average home. Owned by the Crown Estate and nicknamed London’s Billionaire Row, there is no other street quite like it. Here are the 10 most expensive streets in London, ranked in order of average cost per house.
