London is calling to you and if you canít resist its charms then a move is inevitable. The region is large and so it takes time and research to find the area that is right for you. The best way to go about this is to look at each postcode district to see what qualities each of them have, starting with the South-West district.
The SW area contains numerous London Boroughs, including Westminster, the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Lambeth, Wandsworth, Hammersmith & Fulham, Richmond Upon Thames, Croydon and Merton. It is one of Londonís original postcode areas but several years after it was established it merged with the disbanded (southern) region and then it and all other postcode districts in London had mini sections created with them. This change was introduced to improve mail delivery, make navigation more accurate and expand the information displayed on street signs.
There are currently twenty-eight of these in SW and they are SW1 to S20, as well as various additional places in SW1 and SW99 which is a non-geographic postcode used by businesses for PO boxes and direct marketing purposes. The SW1 to 10 areas are in south-west London and SW11 to 20 are inside the Battersea ward.
SW11 is the code used for the Battersea district which unsurprisingly contains Battersea, as well as Clapham Junction. Both of these are in Wandsworth and use the post town address of LONDON. Close by to the SW11 area is SW3, SW4, SW6, SW8, SW10 SW12 and SW18 meaning that Chelsea, Clapham, Fulham, Battersea, Knightsbridge, Wandsworth and Balham are not far from here. House prices are high, as to be expected for somewhere so close to the centre of London. Studio apartments are the cheapest option with them going for around £203,000. Flats starts of reasonably at £296,000, £471,000 and £670,000 for one, two and three bedrooms but the price can skyrocket above £1 million for more bedrooms. Houses follow a similar trend with a single bedroom home costing approximately £373,000 and increasing to £685,000 for three bedrooms and once again surpassing £1 million for five and six bedrooms.
Very few areas have improved and developed as much over the years as SW11. There are many homes to choose from here including sixties estates, medium sized Victorian terraces, 80s mansions, riverside penthouses, Edwardian terraces, flats, maisonettes, old multi-storey housing, and many more. Battersea Park, Falcon Park and Christchurch Gardens are among the open spaces in the area, with each containing different facilities and establishments. Battersea Art Centre holds various shows and classes, The Grand hosts live music acts, the countries first Jongleurs comedy club is here, as are The Royal Academy of Dancing, Battersea Canoe Club, community centres and more. There are various train stations as well as buses and tube stations.
