Despite great efforts from businesses and organisations, Romford missed out on the title of Best High Street in London in this year’s competition.
The results were announced at an award ceremony on Monday and Myddleton Road in Haringey swept the top prize.
Romford town centre arrived third after the Marsh and The Cut in Waterloo.
Earlier this year, Romford town centre was shortlisted in the Great British High Street competition.
The award, which is run by the Department for Communities and Local Government, celebrates work and initiatives to revive and diversify the country’s high streets.
The winner was decided by public vote and by a panel of judges from industry leaders including British Land, the Post Office and Holland & Barratt.
