Yorkshire’s most expensive street is Rutland Drive in Harrogate (£1,109,000).

Nitesh Patel, economist at Lloyds TSB, said: "Kensington and Chelsea have some of the most expensive streets in England and Wales. The Royal Borough has been a highly fashionable area to live in for many decades. In recent years, its prime location in Central London and classical architecture has attracted affluent celebrities and ultra wealthy foreign businessmen, helping to drive up property prices. Across most regions, the most expensive streets are typically tightly clustered."
