London is without a doubt one of the best places to live in the entire world. If you want to discover this for yourself then you have a wide choice of what part of London shall be your new home. One way to search is to take a close look at each postcode region. The South-Western postcode area, usually abbreviated to SW, was created alongside the other original London postcodes in 1857. It has undergone many changes over the years with the most significant ones being in 1868 when it amalgamated the defunct S area and in 1917 when it was split into multiple sub regions.
There are now twenty-eight of them in SW, with them being SW1 and its multiple spin offs and SW2 to SW20. SW99 is the remaining code and is used for direct marketing and PO boxes by different businesses but is within SW3. All of these new areas were developed to improve the accuracy and effectiveness of navigation, street signs and postal delivery. The SW1-10 codes encompass parts of south-west London, while SW11-20 are used for the Battersea district. The Boroughs included are the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Westminster, Fulham, Lambeth, Hammersmith, Croydon, Wandsworth, Merton and Richmond Upon Thames.
SW1Y is used exclusively for the St. James’s area in the Borough of Westminster. Like all of SW, it has the post town address of LONDON. Some of the most expensive homes in all of London can be found in the SW1 area with a single broom flat going at around £625,900. It increased further for each additional bedroom with the price for three being £2,239,100 and five going for approximately £7,951,000. Houses range from £2,155,800 to £7,403,000 for one and six bedrooms each and the a the middle ground of a three bedroom costs about £3,040,900. Studio flats are also pricey.
The region itself is bordered by SW3, SW7, W1, W2, WC2 and SW6, SE1 and SE11 on the other side of the Thames, meaning that Chelsea, Knightsbridge, Mayfair, Bayswater, Holborn, Kennington and Lambeth are all close by. The apartments here are of excellent quality, especially those near Green Park. There are some mansion buildings here but many homes are flats above retailers or were converted from old houses. There are many gentlemen’s clubs with a variety of groups assembling. Some of these are Boodle’s, Brook’s, Carlton Club and White’s Club. Fine wine merchants Berry Brothers and Rudd is located here as are numerous extravagant tailors. There is also a wide array of art galleries such as The White Cube, which is the home of Damian Hurst and Tracy Emin’s works.
