Here is Royal Mail's list of the most romantic towns and post-code areas in the UK.
They are based on an analysis of mail volumes in the run-up to Valentine's Day - comparing the amount of post on the 6th of February with the amount on the 13th - the day before the Feast of St Valentine.
Steve Molloy, Royal Mail’s Delivery Director for Essex, said:
“Love is definitely in the air in Romford and across the East London region as our research shows residents are eager to express their love through traditional Valentine’s Day cards. We’re delighted to declare Romford the UK’s ‘Capital of Love’.”
