London has many different places that each have their own charm, opportunities and experiences waiting to be explored. Each area can be very diverse from the one next to it so proper consideration need to be undertaken so that we chose what is best for us. By looking at each area through itís postcode region we can get a collective glimpse of London that also allows us to dig deeper if we are intrigued by it. The Western Central, or WC, area, is more or less in the centre of London and is densely developed. A small part of the City of London is included within itís boundaries but it is mostly responsible for
the Boroughs of Camden, City of Westminster and Islington.
In order to make mail delivery and navigation easier, as well as allowing for the expansion of information on street signs each London postcode area was subdivided in 1917. There are fourteen districts now within WC, each beginning with WC1 or WC2 and then followed by a letter. WC2H has the postal town address of LONDON and is responsible for Leicester Square which is a part of Camden and Westminster.
With the it being in the centre and right next to the City of London, WC2H is a sought after place to live and the house prices follow suite. The average price for a studio flat is £677,000 and a single bedroomed apartment costs around £581,000, going up to £2,048,000 for three bedrooms. A two bedroomed house can go for £1,699,000, and if you want a home with six bedrooms you should be prepared to pay in the region of £6,311,000.
WC2H is of course home to Leicester Square, one of the most popular destinations in all of London. Itís origins go back to 1630 when it was constructed as a large house by the 2nd Earl of Leicester. Today it is so much more and features a small park with a statue of William Shakespeare in the centre and busts of Sir Joshua Reynolds, Sir Isaac Newton, John Hunter, Charlie Chaplin and William Hogarth scattered throughout. Theatreland is here and contains many cinemas and boasts the largest screen than any other film venue. Many premieres for movie blockbusters take place here and Graumanís Chinese Theatre immortalises stars of the screen with floor mounted plaques.
