What Do You Love About Your High Street?
Tell us what you love about your high street on social
Throughout history high streets have been our gathering places; centres of commerce, conversation and community. They help make where we live unique and special. They are one of the most visited and used types of heritage in the country, a connection to our past and a key to our future.
Historic England wants to have a conversation with the nation about what the future of high streets could be at this pivotal moment in their history.
To get that conversation started, we’re asking you...
What do you love about your high street?
20-26 September 2021, tell us what you love about your high street on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or LinkedIn using #HighStreetLove
- the shop you bought your first single
- the street corner where you had your first kiss
- a café you go to every day
- a historic building you’ve always loved
We want to hear about it. Share your pictures, videos and stories!
Champion your local high street by tagging @HistoricEngland as well as the people, shops and places that you love.
The future of the high street
Those stories will come together to build a national picture of what makes high streets so special and to learn what matters most when it comes to their future.
Historic England will create a programme of discussions, commissions and experiments that further explore what high streets could be like in the future, all with the aim of helping people feel empowered to take action for the high street and support its future.
