The top 5 landmark streets of London

The streets give freedom and an extraordinary feeling of lightness. They have their own story and their own truth. They have a flavor and character that you can not confuse with any other. Streets are grains, of which urban mosaics are collected. Secluded alleys and luxurious boulevards, noisy highways and pompous avenues - they all determine the spirit of the city. London is also a kind of mosaic. And today we will tell you about the most landmark streets of the capital.

Grosvenor Crescent. Grosvenor Crescent, located just 5 minutes walk from Buckingham Palace, is considered one of the most expensive streets in London. According to the annual survey of Lloyds Bank, the houses` cost here is an average of £ 16,918,000. Probably, this price is explained by the stunning beauty and incredible comfort of Grosvenor Crescent.

Abbey Road. Abbey Road is perhaps one of the busiest streets in London. It is crowded with tourists from all over the world and local admirers of the Beatles. And all because this is where the studio, where the legendary band recorded their last album, is located. It, like the recording studio, is called Abbey Road. On the cover of the album there is the picture of the participants of the quartet, crossing the street on the crosswalk. Now this crosswalk is a favorite place for photography.

Piccadilly. Piccadilly Street is widely known outside of London, as it has been repeatedly mentioned in literary and musical works. One of them is Oscar Wilde's play "The Importance of Being Earnest." In the Middle Ages Piccadilly was considered the main road. It was called "the way to Reading" or "the way from Colleenbrook". The current name of the street was obtained thanks to tailor Robert Baker, who sewed fashionable collars Piccadilly.

Baker Street. The name of this street is familiar to every child, because on Baker Street 221B lived the famous detective Sherlock Holmes. And although he was only a book character and never really existed, visitors and native Londoners still want to visit such famous street. At the exit from the metro station of the same name, you will meet Mr. Holmes himself - there is a statue of the legendary detective. Fans of the character created by Arthur Conan Doyle can go to the Sherlock Holmes Museum. But fans of the TV series "Sherlock" are better to visit the Museum of Madame Tussaud: you can see modern Sherlock for yourself.

Carnaby Street. This narrow street, from which the London spirit is coming, is a real finding for keen mods. After all, it is full of excellent clothing stores. In addition, there are many pubs and cafes in which you can have a bite on hot summer evenings. In winter, the street turns into a real fairy tale: Christmas lights are everywhere, and in the evenings the backlights are turned on.
