We at Man and Van think that moving home should be an exciting and fun occasion so if you're looking for that perfect place then we recommend you take a look at London's SE1 area. The South Eastern postcode area covers some of the southeast area of London and contains most of the Boroughs of Southwark, Lewisham and Greenwich, with some parts of the Boroughs of Lambeth, Bexley and Bromley covered.
Like many of the original London postcode areas SE was established in 1857, and gained more ground in 1868. In 1917 each district was split into several sections and now there are 30 subdivisions ranging from SE1-SE28, alongside SE99 and SE1P.
This was done to make navigation and mail deliveries easier and more accurate.
SE1P, however, is not a proper postcode as such because it's only used for PO Boxes and direct marketing.
SE1 is the head district of the southeast and covers all of Bankside, South Bank and Southwark, as well as parts of Bermondsey and Vauxhall. These are all part of the Boroughs Southwark and Lambeth. It is bordered by SE11, SE15 SE16, SE17, EC3, E1, WC2, and SW1, meaning that Kennington, Peckham, Bermondsey, Walworth, Aldgate, Whitechapel, Convent Garden and Westminster are all nearby.
The homes in SE1 are more affordable than those in other London areas, with the average studio apartment costing around £291,000, a one bedroom flat costing in the region of £339,000 and a two bedroom home being near £526,000. SE1 is one of the largest districts in all of London and is home to such landmarks as the London Eye, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, the Tate Art Gallery, the Bankside Power Station, the National Theatre, the South Bank Centre, the National Film Theatre, Waterloo International and Borough Market, which has been held regularly for many years here. Many businesses have their head offices here including The Financial Times, Sainsbury's and Shell. There is a wide range of housing and many transport links.
