A North Wales location has been named among the most expensive places to buy a house in the UK.

The Times recently revealed the UK's top 10 most expensive streets thanks to the help of data from Halifax.

It comes as little surprise the entire top 10 consisted of streets from within London, with Grosvenor Square in Mayfair topping the list with an average property price tag of more than £20 million.

The Times said: "The city’s top-end multimillion-pound prices dwarf the average house price in the UK, which is at about £283,000.

"The most expensive properties in the country are almost 72 times more expensive than the typical house price."

The most expensive street outside London is East Road in Weybridge, Surrey, with an average price tag for a home of over £9 million.

Mortgages director at Halifax, Kim Kinnaird, said: "Even in the most expensive region outside of London, the southeast, the top ten most expensive streets are, on average, £10 million cheaper than their London equivalents.”
