Very few places can boast that they have a wide range of entertainment, sport, history, art, politics and more easily available. The London region can do this though because it is the heart of the UK and so features anything you could ever want. If you do want a bit of everything then you should look at the SW1 postcode area.
SW stands for the South Western district and it is made up of many smaller areas so youíre sure to find something that suits you. There are twenty-seven of these subsections in total, ranging from SW1A to SW20. There is an additional code; SW95, but it does not represent an actual place. Having many more codes may seem inconvenient but it brings many advantages because it makes mail delivery travel and navigation easier. Most of the SW codes (the first seventeen) are used in London, with the remainders being utilised in Battersea.
One of the SW1 codes you should consider for a home is SW1V. It is the area between Victoria Station, the Houses of Parliament and Vauxhall Bridge, as well as most of Pimlico. The post town it uses on addresses in LONDON, and it is in the Borough of Westminster. It is bordered by the postcode regions of W1, W2 (Western), WC2 (Western Central), SE1, SE2 (South Eastern), and fellow S South Western areas, SW3, SW6 and SW7. This means that if you live in SW1V place such as Lambeth, Chelsea, Kennington, Mayfair, among others are close by. Overall, house prices in SW1V have been on the rise, with homes currently going for a s cheap as £2,079,000 and as expensive as £7,382,000. Flats have remained more stable in cost but remain very pricey, spanning between roughly £1,198,000 to £6,419,000 for one to four bedrooms. The dearest homes in SW1V tend to be in Montrose Place, Chester Square and Cowley Street.
If you move to SW1V then youíll be most likely living in Pimlico. Most of the homes here consist of Victorian homes, many of which have been converted or renovated. It is a very busy area because of itís proximity to the Houses of Parliament and so many politicians live here, most of them in the Dolphin Square apartments. When on the search for a home here itís worth taking a look at the Churchill Gardens estate and itís sixteen-thousands abodes.

Pimlico Railway station and others allow for easy travel in and out of the area,
