In a small town in the north of Scotland there is a Guinness World Record road. That’s where it is.
The SHORTEST ROAD in the WORLD: 2 meters and 5 centimeters (6.6 ft)
# Two steps are enough to cover it all, but almost everyone is unaware of its existence
We are in Wick, a small town of about 7,000 inhabitants in the north of Scotland, exactly at Ebenezer Place. Here you can experience a unique, albeit very short, experience, because literally two steps are enough to walk the 2 meters and 5 centimeters (6.6 ft) in length of the shortest road in the world. Record certified by the Guinness World Records judges.
The reasons why those two meters and five centimeters (6.6 ft) are often ignored by travelers is that that short stretch of road is incorporated into the larger Union Street and is entirely occupied by the front door of the Mackays Hotel.
# There is only one street number, the one of the hotel on which the street plaque is affixed
The hotel at number 1 Ebenezer Place, the first and last number on the street, was built in 1883 and directly overlooks the shortest street in the world. The owner of the hotel certainly could not have imagined that in the future his building would be the protagonist of a world record. The same tourists who go to this place every year to ask the reception of the hotel where Ebenezer Place is located, do not realize that they have crossed it a moment before.
In 1887, as the street was completely occupied by the hotel entrance, the municipal administration of Wick asked to hang the plaque to make the address visible. On that date, the shortest road in the world was officially entered in the city registers.
