It’s official: Canning Town is one of the most festive places in the country.

That’s according to the Royal Mail, which analysed its postcode database to find the nation’s most Christmassy postcode.

And E16 - which boasts streets including Tree Road, Cranberry Lane and Star Lane – came out ninth.

It has 10 Christmas-themed street names and a further 76 house names – but that’s well behind nearby Bow.

The E3 postcode has 47 street names and 212 house names with a festive theme.

Steve Rooney, head of Royal Mail’s address management unit, said: “These seasonal street and house names add a bit of festive fun into the day and definitely put a smile on our face when we are out, no matter the weather.”
