When usually think of postcodes as a means of delivering mail and while this is their main purpose they also act as a way to split larger areas into smaller ones. This is especially useful when searching for a new home particularly in an area as big as London because it narrows everything down into smaller portions. One of these areas is the Western & Paddington district, which is usually just abbreviated to W. It encompasses a portion of central London then moves west along the River Thames and covers the Boroughs of Westminster, Camden, Kensington & Chelsea, Ealing, Hounslow, Hammersmith & Fulham and Brent.
Ever since 1917 each London postcode region was divided so that each includes subsections. This was done to improve postal services and street signs as well as making navigation easier by allowing places to be in more specific areas. The western part of the postcode region is covered by W1 that spins off to W1A into W1H, W1J, W1K, W1S to W1U and W1W. These are all in Westminster except W1T which is in Camden and W1A which is a non-geographic postcode address. The rest of the postcodes are W2 to W14 and are responsible for the Paddington area.
W2 is the head district for Paddington and includes Paddington, Bayswater, Hyde Park, Westbourne Green, Westbourne Green, Notting Hill and part of Little Venice. These are found in the Boroughs of Westminster and Kensington & Chelsea and has the post town address of LONDON. W2 is surrounded by the W1, W8, W9, W11, SW1, SW7 and NW1 areas, meaning that Marylebone, Kensington, Little Venice, Notting Hill, Pimlico, Knightsbridge, Camden Town and more are nearby. House prices are less expensive than W1 but are still among the pricier of London homes. Flats Start at around £455,100, then go to £1,460,300, increasing further to £5,272,000 for one, three and five bedrooms respectively. Houses follow a similar trend with a single bedroom costing £678,700, a three bedroom house costs about £2,056,900 and a six bedroom abode costs approximately £5,131,400. Studio apartments are much cheaper at roughly £407,700.
There is a range of housing scattered throughout here including Victorian flats thirties apartments, multi-occupy stucco houses, terraces, cottages and more. Hyde Park is here and is the largest park in London and has many facilities and holds numerous events. There is an array of transport available especially the tube that has many stations here. The high street is a focal point and there are restaurants with cuisine from many nations on hand. It is mostly residential but there are some museums and galleries a available.
