Searching for a new home can be difficult. You have to look at each building and it’s surrounding area carefully to ensure it has everything you need and there won’t be any unwelcome surprises. While the London region would seem an ideal choice when deciding where to live there are so many great places to choose from it becomes difficult.
The South Eastern postcode area was created in 1857 as one of the original postcode districts. Ever since 1917 each postcode sector has had smaller sub-areas introduced within it in an effort to improve mail delivery and street signs, as well a making navigation and travel easier and more precise. There are currently twenty-eight of them, ranging from SE1 to SE28 and there is also the non-geographic SE1P code that is utilised by various businesses for direct marketing and PO boxes.
The SE17 division covers Walworth and Newington, that are both found in the Borough of Southwark and have the post town address of LONDON. SE17 shares it’s borders with the SE1, SE5 and SE11 districts which contain the places Lambeth, Southwark, Kennington, Camberwell, Denmark Hill, among others. Houses here are among some of the cheapest in London with flats ranging from about £205,000 to £266,000 for one to four bedrooms and homes starting at approximately £341,000 for two bedrooms, increasing to around £600,000 for five bedrooms. Studio apartments are available at roughly £180,000. There is a good mix of housing types available here such as Victorian terraces low and high rise flats, small terraces, modern homes, mansion blocks, Fifties abodes, red brick homes, and more that are suitable for first time buyers.
One of the key aspects of the area is the popular East Street Market that is a full of bargains, selling things from food from all nations, household goods, clothing and plants. There is another smaller market here that sells items such as music, clothing and fruit & vegetables. Elephant & Castle is the location of the local shopping centre and features more well known high street stores. There are two theatres in SE17; The White Bear and The Blue Elephant that host a variety of shows, exhibitions and children’s activities. There are several open spaces to be explored, such as Burgess Park and Kennington Park, with the latter being popular venues for sports and RADA theatre students. Transport links here are strong due to many tube stations and services, as well as a multitude of buses that run here and motorways including the A2, A3 and A215 that are nearby.
