Edinburgh streets some of the most Instragrammable in the UK.

Carnaby Street in London hit the top spot with 366,761 engagements, but coming in second was our very own Stockbridge with 231,679 – not technically a street but a very beautiful area none the less.

Number five is the magical Victoria Street at 75,837 engagements, with its colourful buildings and steep, cobbled road, and number 15 is the Royal Mile with a respectable 16,553 engagements.

All popular spots for tourists, though we believe they may have missed out a few absolute classics – Circus Lane, The Shore, Rose Street on a sunny day…

Simon Stirling of Direct2Florist said: “One of the best things about the UK are the quaint little side streets and beautiful roads which make up some of our oldest and best towns and cities.

“With city breaks becoming a bigger focus this year, we wanted to pull together a handy guide of the most beautiful streets to visit post lockdown, and did so through Instagram - on the logic that the more hashtags for the street, the more photogenic and more beautiful it was.

"These are the perfect streets to visit this summer for a cake and a coffee or a pint.”
