Each part of London has itís own charm and unique qualities and this is saying a lot when you consider the size of the region. Finding the right place for you can be tricky but a thorough search can ensure you find the perfect home and thereís a good chance it will be in the SE18 postcode region.
The South Eastern district encompasses the majority of the Boroughs of Southwark, Lewisham and Greenwich, as well as some sections of the Boroughs of Lambeth, Bexley and Bromley. Londonís postcode were created in 1857 and SE was one of them. From 1917 the area was expanded to be twenty-eight postcodes, ranging from SE1 to SE28 rather than just being one all encompassing code. This was done in order to improve mail delivery, street signs, navigation and travel. Two other postcode exists here; SE99 and SE1P. These two are used only for direct marketing and PO boxes for business rather than being for their own area.
One of these areas is SE18 which encompasses Woolwich, Plumstead and Shooterís Hill, all of which fall into the Borough of Greenwich and have the post town address of LONDON. SE18 shares itís boundaries with SE2, SE7, SE9, SE28 and the Kent region meaning that Thamesmead, Charlton, Eltham, Abbey Wood, Bromley, Dover and more are nearby. The area is on the outskirts of the London region and so itís house prices are lower to accommodate this. Flats start at around £151,000 for a single room and increase to £309,000 for four bedrooms. Houses span between approximately £187,000 to roughly £391,000 for two to five bedrooms. Studio flats cost about £178,000.
Parts of the area have undergone heavy development over recent years in order to greatly improve itís housing and facilities. Landmarks here include the water tower at the top of Shooter's Hill in Victorian Gothic style and Severndroog Castle. The hill is one of the highest points in London. Local open spaces include Oxleas Wood, that also features a golf course. The first McDonalds restaurant in the UK was here and the area has been featured many times in different literary works. Local sports teams include Bridon F. and Meridian F.
Many famous individuals have called the SE18 area home including actor Frankie Howard, musicians Boy George, Tinie Tempah and Marvin Humes, writers Samuel Pepys, Steve Moore, Algernon Henry Blackwood, Fanny Cradock and Richard Lovelace, engineer Samuel brown, snooker player Steve Davis, football players Charlie Buchan, Paul Walsh, Kevin Horlock, Ian Wright, Sean Wright-Phillips and Bradley Wight-Phillips, darts champion Andy Fordham, mathematicians Peter Barlow and James Joseph Sylvester, and politician John Henry Hayes.
