Many of England’s most expensive streets are located in the London borough of Kensington and Chelsea. But outside of the capital, Surrey’s Virginia Water, Cobham and Weybridge are being targeted by foreign investors who are reportedly snatching up multi million pound properties in order to make the most of the weakened sterling.

Barton Wyatt, a Virginia Water-based estate agency isn’t surprised to find Woodlands Road, West Virigina Water in the list. Here the average property will set you back £2.3 million based on property sales between 2005 and 2009. James Wyatt, Senior Partner at the agency comments, ‘In 2009 alone we have seen much higher property prices in the area than the stated £2.3 million average and in the future we would expect more roads to be cited in the wealthiest streets list based on the properties and estates on the market, how well they sell and the demand from wealthy buyers.’
