Milsom Street voted as 'Best Fashion Street' in UK
8th March 2010
Milsom Street in Bath has won the Google Street View Award for the 'Best fashion Street' in the UK.
Google announced the winners of their new Google Street View Awards today. The awards are a celebration of Britain’s best-loved streets as voted for by the public in a nationwide poll.
The award for Best Fashion Street and other awards have been created in anticipation of further imagery being added to Google’s revolutionary Street View tool, which currently allows users to view and navigate 360 degree street-level imagery in 25 British towns, including many of those nominated for the Street View Awards. Later this year, Street View will be rolled out to cover additional streets from around the UK.
Shortlisted nominations for each of the award categories have been compiled by a panel of experts from the worlds of food, fashion and travel including VisitBritain, TV personalities Julia Bradbury (Countryfile), Jeff Banks (The Clothes Show), leading journalists Jo Elvin (Editor, Glamour) and authors David Else (Editor of The Lonely Planet Guide to Great Britain). The experts were asked to nominate streets that fulfilled a pre-set criteria for each category.
Milsom Street has a huge choice of shops from specialist shoe shops to trendy boutiques and fashionable stores.
