There are many great places to live in London and it can be difficult to figure out how to go about your search. You could tackle each area or each Borough one at a time but this can be difficult because there are so many of them. One of the best ways to go about it is to investigate using postcode regions. This is helpful because it splits London and its surrounding area into larger sections but then easily allows you to focus on each one using itís subdivisions. The W or Western and Paddington postcode area that represents part of central and western London with it being close to the Thames.
The Western district only uses the code W1, and itís spin offs W1A to W1H, W1K, W1J, W1S to W1U and W1W. They are all for areas in Westminster except for W1T which is in Camden. The other postcodes for the W group go from W2 to W14 and cover a variety of different boroughs in the Paddington area. All these subdivisions have been introduced since 1917 in order to improve the quality of navigation, mail delivery and street signs.
W8 encompasses Kensington and part of Holland Park which are both in the Borough of Kensington & Chelsea. Its post town address is LONDON. It is bordered by the W2, W11, W14, SW5 and SW7 areas, meaning that Bayswater, Notting Hill, Barons Court, Earls Court and Knightsbridge are all close by. House prices in this region are towards the high end compared to the rest of London. A studio flat averages at £740,000, with a one bedroom flat costing around £657,000 and goes up to significantly for each additional room.
