In celebration of Valentine's Day, the Royal Mail has unveiled the most romantic towns and cities they deliver to across the UK.

The postal service have recorded over 2,000 loved-themed street names around the country, including Love Lane, Rose Street and Bleeding Heart Yard.

But where is the most romantic spot in the UK? Their research found London has the most romantic street names, closely followed by Bristol and Chesterfield.

Elsewhere in their research, they found that romance is also one of the most popular themes for people when it comes to naming their houses. Rose Cottage and Dove Cottage are the most common love-related homes the Royal Mail delivers to.

Plus, the 'S' postcode, including Sheffield and Derbyshire, is the nation's most romantic postal area — home to over 94 romantic themed addresses.

"The capital is the UK's city of love, as it boasts the most loved-up addresses. When it comes to expressing your love in words - nothing comes close to a hand-written card," Steve Rooney, Head of Royal Mail's Address Management Unit, says.
