Harpenden has made Zoopla's latest rich list thanks to its large number of million pound homes. 

Outside London, the Herts hotspot has among the highest number of streets in Britain with an average property price of £1m or more, the property portal reported. 

Harpenden had 115 such streets as of September 2021, up from 100 a year ago. Guildford topped the chart with 176, followed by Reading (137), Sevenoaks (133), Leatherhead (127) and Farnham (116). 

The East of England is the area of Britain with the third highest number of million-pound streets at 1,464, behind London (4,544) and the South East (4,366). 

The capital is home to Britain's 10 most expensive streets, however, with Kensington Palace Gardens (W8) coming out on top for the 13th consecutive year, with an average price of £29,898,000. 

Outside London, Titlark Hill in Ascot is top with an average property price of £8,410,000.
