It’s official: The Pantiles has been named one of Britain’s best high streets. Today, the Great British High Street Competition announced that The Pantiles has made their 2016 shortlist.
We have been named as one of the top three in the Parade of Shops category, alongside Hoole in Chester and The Parade in Claygate – but we need your votes to be crowned the best.
The competition, which is now in its third year, saw a record 900 entries across 14 categories. Now the shortlist has been revealed, and the Great British public has the chance to vote for their favourite high street every day.

Alongside the public’s votes, The Pantiles will be visited by an expert judging panel, including British Land, the Post Office and Holland & Barrett. We’ll need to impress them and the public for a chance to win.
“Our high streets are the life and soul of towns, villages and cities across the country and the record number of competition entries, this year is proof of their continued importance to local life. From North London to Northumberland, great work is underway to adapt the high street to the needs of modern life. I want to wish all who’ve entered the very best of luck.”
– Andrew Percy, High Streets Minister
The Great British High Street Competition 2016 is one of a number of Government initiatives to champion high streets as cornerstones of the community, celebrating the work that is being done to adapt, revive and diversify them in challenging times. Other initiatives include a £6.7 billion package of business rates support to reduce the rates for 900,000 British businesses.
“It is a real honour to be shortlisted for this year’s awards. Our traders, events team, and asset managers are working incredibly hard to ensure that The Pantiles realises its goal of becoming a top national retail, food and beverage and entertainment venue. To be short listed for an award is very encouraging. We are truly proud of what we have achieved up to this point and we are excited to see where we can take The Pantiles next. Please vote for The Pantiles but more importantly, come and experience this wonderful promenade for yourself.”
– Corin Thoday, Land owner of the Upper Pantiles, Targetfollow’s CEO
