A sample of 40 participants were shown a series of images of the streets, and eye-tracking software was used to record the number of times people looked at each image and the duration spent looking at them.

The average fixation time was then used to rank each street according to how “attractive” it is.

The research found that Merton Street in Oxford ranked 19th in their list of most attractive streets.
