The Western postcode district comprises of twenty-six smaller areas, that counts W14 among it’s number. These are W1B to W14 and have allowed for many improvements to postal delivery as well as navigation, travel and even street signs. W1A is another postcode for this area but it is non-geographic and so it does not encompass any actual places. The section of London covered by the W codes are from out Central London to the western border of the London region.
The West Kensington district utilises the W14 code and contains West Kensington, Kensington Olympia and Holland Park. These are located in either the Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham or the Borough of Kensington & Chelsea but all use LONDON on addresses for it’s town location. W14 is bordered by neighbouring W areas W6, W8, W11 and W12, as well as SW (South Western) locations SW5 and SW6. These nearby areas contain places such as Hammersmith, Kensington, Notting Hill, Shepherds Bush, Earl’s Court and Fulham. Houses prices here have remained mostly very consistent over the years, with only detached homes showing any real increase. These days the average price for a home here is £638,000 to £3,893,000 for one to five bedrooms and the equally reliable flat prices go between £429,000 to £3,417,000. Ilchester Place and Addison Road are the most expensive living areas in W14.
