Every home needs to be just right for us. It has to have everything we need, match our tastes and make us feel safe and happy. The surrounding area has to do even more because it has do all the things the interior does and then some. It has to be pleasant, there needs to be facilities such as transport that we need nearby, it has to have places to visit for fun and recreation and so on. Youíre bound to find this in the London region, especially in the SW8 area.
The South Western postcode region of London is one of itís original areas and is made up of twenty-eight smaller sections. SW17 is one of these and overall they range from SW1A to SW20. Most of these represent parts of London while others cover Battersea. The idea to have many postcodes rather than a few all encompassing ones was introduced in 1917 and since has allowed for improvement to be made to the postal service and enhancements to travel and navigation. SW95 is another postcode here but is non-geographic.
SW8 contains South Lambeth, Vauxhall, Wandsworth Road and parts of Battersea, Clapham and a section of Stockwell. These are in the Boroughs of either Lambeth or Wandsworth. LONDON is the town name used on addresses for the area. SW8 is not far from the centre of London and shares it boundaries with SW1, SW3, SW4, SW9, SW11, SE5 and SE11 (South Eastern), which contain such places as Belgravia, Westminster, Chelsea, Brixton, Camberwell and Lambeth. The price of homes here has risen recently and now homes go between around £412,000 to £1,478,000 for one to five bedrooms, while one bedroom flats cost approximately £402,000 and continue to increase significantly for additional bedrooms. The most sough after areas are Lansdowne Gardens and Thackeray Road.
Lambeth is best known for the spectacular circa late 11th century Lambeth Palace, which acts as the official London residence of the Archbishop of Canterbury. It is opposite the palace of Westminster and near the River Thames. The library inside the Palace holds every Church of England record and has manuscripts that date back over one-thousand years that contain information on local and genealogy history, as well as over 120,000 books. St. Thomasí Hospital is also in Lambeth and is one of Londonís oldest and largest teaching hospitals. There are several underground stations here.
Vauxhall contains mostly social housing and gentrified homes. It is a popular living location for Members of Parliament and civil servants because it is close to the Houses of Parliament and Whitehall. It is a diverse area, with a significant Portuguese population and a large Muslim community. There is also a large gay community in the area with many nightclubs and events catered to them, giving the area the nickname ďVoho.Ē There are numerous landmarks in Vauxhall and excellent transport services.
Battersea is home to the New Covent Garden Market, Battersea Park, the Shaftsbury Park Estate, the Northcote Road shopping area, Battersea Arts Centre and more.
