Ranked among the most picturesque streets in Britain, Mermaid Street is the kind of charming ramshackle scene you’d expect to see on a shortbread tin. After a scroll-stopping snap for your Instagram feed? This is your place. Draped in leaves, half-timbered Tudor buildings with names such as “The House with Two Front Doors” and “The House Opposite” tumble down a cobbled hill. Best visited in May when the wisteria is in full bloom.
