Easter, eggs, bunny, hops – what’s in a street name this bank holiday weekend?

Ahead of the upcoming Easter weekend, I took a look at different locations with related names and found there were plenty up and down the country, from Bunny Lane in Wiltshire to High Easter in Essex and Hopgarden Lane in Sevenoaks.

The five words included in my Land Registry search were: bunny, chick, easter, egg and hop. I am by no means suggesting there is a premium for living in a home with one of these names but here are the average sale prices for streets containing each word.

Streets with hop in their name feature heavily in the list of top 10 streets by overall sold price since 2000. This is of course a nod to the British passion for all things beer, as Hop or Oast Houses were originally used for drying hops before they were sent to the brewery. Great news for beer lovers, it isn't just Easter that's round the corner, as things currently stand pub gardens are also due to open in England on 12 April.
