It can difficult when choosing where you want to live in London. The area is so vast it can be hard to find what you're looking for, and that's why looking at each area separately can make life easier. London can be split into many postcode areas, with the EC area encompassing most of the City of London. Therefore, it covers the centre of the entire region. EC also contains parts of the Islington, Hackney, Tower Hamlets and Camden Boroughs.
The EC postcode area was split into four partitions in 1917, each one simply named EC1, EC2, EC3 and EC4 respectively. This helps to make sorting and delivering mail simpler as well as helping with geographic reference for directions and allowing for street signs to provide more information. To improve things even further, each of these areas was split into other sectors. EC3 houses six separate areas, five of which are in the City of London. These are EC3A, which represents St. Mary Axe and Aldgate; EC3M, which contains Leadenhall, Lloyd's of London and Fenchurch Street; EC3R with Monument and Billingsgate; and EC3V comprising the Royal Exchange and Lombard Street. EC3N is made up of both the Boroughs of City of London and Tower Hamlets. EC3P is a special non-geographic postcode that is reserved for PO box address and direct marketing and cannot be used for directional purposes.
The borders of EC3 are roughly Houndsditch in the north, Minories and the Tower of London in the east, the River Thames in the south, and London Bridge and Threadneedle street in the west. EC3 covers most of the south-eastern corner of the City of London and includes Pudding Lane, Mincing Lane, Lombard Street, Monument, Gracechurch Street, Fenchurch Street, Tower Hill, Aldgate and Leadenhall Street.
EC3 is one of the oldest parts of London and is the most commercial place in the region. It lacks the historical sites other areas have because it has always been expanding and looking towards the future. Many stores have opened here in recent years and there are many pubs and restaurants. The average price of a studio flat in the area is just over £275,000, with one bedroom flats averaging almost £383,000 and two bedroom houses are around £686,000.
