If you're moving home in London then you're in for a treat. It is one of the most bustling, exciting, interesting and diverse places in the whole world. If it's the EC1 postcode area that you've chosen then you have a lot to look forward to. The EC area itself covers most of the City of London as well as the Boroughs of Islington, Camden, Hackney and Tower Hamlets. It is split into four separate codes EC1, EC2, EC3 and EC4. These were established in 1917 and are used for sorting mail and as geographic references, as well as indicators on street signs.
EC1 can also be broken down further into seven subdivisions. EC1A covers St. Bartholomew's Hospital and its local authority is the City of London. EC1M contains Clerkenwell and Farrington and the area is Islington, as is EC1R which is responsible for the west of Finsbury and the Finsbury Estate; EC1V for the east of Finsbury and Moorfields Eye Hospital, and EC1Y for St. Luke's and Bunhill Fields. EC1N is used in the borough of Camden for Hatton Garden and EC1P is a non-geographic postcode district, which means it's only used for routing, direct marketing and PO Boxes.
The EC1 area is more or less bounded by City Road in the north, Aldergate Street in the east, Chiswell Street and Newgate Street in the south and Rosebury Avenue in the west, though a small section on the edge of EC1 contains Old Street. In terms of other postcode areas, EC1 is surrounded by the Northern (N), Eastern (E), South Eastern (SE) and Western Central (WC).
The region has been under development over recent years with many new homes developed and new business such as media and Internet firms setting up here. The range of homes ensures that no matter what your price range you'll find something for you from the council flats around St. Luke's to the upmarket Grade II listed apartments in New River Head.
