The Lisburn Road was honoured in this year’s Google Street View Awards, devised to find and celebrate Britain’s best streets
The Lisburn Road is packed with independent retailers, trendy boutiques and chic cafés and has long been a mecca for label-hunting ladies.
The winning streets were chosen from a shortlist compiled by the Google panel of experts from the world of travel, shopping and lifestyle including Visit Britain, Lonely Planet, Mr & Mrs Smith Guides and a host of celebrities and leading journalists, before being put to the national vote.
Over 20,000 people voted within a two week period between 6 and 20 May, and competition was fierce. The winning streets faced tough opposition from 57 other streets across 10 regions in the UK.
