THE south west of England has the fourth-highest number of the streets containing houses worth one million pounds or more in Britain.  

Data from September shows that there are 512 streets in the south west with million-pound properties.

That puts the region below only London, the south east, and the east of England for the number of expensive streets it has. 

Last September, there were 334 streets in the south-west containing million-pound houses - 178 fewer than this year, according to the data from Zoopla

In London, there are 4,544 streets containing at least one house worth £1 million or more. 

Wales has only nine roads containing million-pound properties, making it the region with the fewest number of expensive streets. 

London's Kensington Palace Gardens was named Britain's most expensive street for the 13th year running, with an average house price of £29.9 million. 

Kensington Palace Gardens has been known as 'Millionaire's Row' since as far back as 1860, contains several embassies, and residents count a royal palace as one of their neighbours. 

The top 10 most expensive streets in Britain are all found in the capital city with Courtenay Avenue, Grosvenor Crescent, Ilchester Place and The Boltons rounding out the top five.

Outside of London, the top 10 most expensive streets are all in the south east, with eight located in Surrey.

Titlarks Hill in Ascot, Berkshire, is the most expensive street outside of London with an average house price of £8.4 million.

There are a total of 11,673 streets in Britain where the houses have an average price of £1 million or more.
