Right up your street

Where is something if it's right up your street?

You might imagine, close to where you live. It is in a way. It means that it's perfect for you and your taste.

I think you'll find the film is right up your street.

If you say 'The Street'in Britain, people will automatically think of Coronation Street; it's Britain's longest running TV soap and started way back in 1960. One actor has been in the whole time!

The show was unusual as it focussed on working class people in the north of England which, at the time, had not been done before. Watch out for those tricky Manchester accents and scary, aggressive women.
