Princess Mews is a popular choice

The Comet said; “One reader chose the walkway between Upper King Street to Princes Mews as one of the prettiest places in Royston, due to its "lovely row of cottages on one side, and old barn on the other.”

Green Drift is rather aptly named

The Comet said; “Green Drift is aptly named for its tree and hedge lined streets, and was picked out by two different readers as one of the prettiest streets in Royston.”

Gower Road is familiar and consistent

The Comet said; “One reader described Gower Road as 'largely unspoiled', with houses lining the wide street and an array of beautiful front gardens.”

Copperfields is a hidden gem

The Comet said; “This little, winding road is full of beautiful homes and front gardens, tucked away from the traffic of Baldock Road.”

Butchers Baulk is stylish in its own way

The Comet said; “Butchers Baulk is an unusually-named footway which stands out from the other choices on this list. Although perhaps not pretty in the traditional sense, this ivy-lined path is certainly atmospheric.”
