From those craving peace and quiet, to party animals out every night of the week, to Londoners who love nothing more than brunching on ironically named breakfasts, there’s a London postcode to perfectly match every personality. But where’s yours? Read on to discover the best London postcode for you.

You’re a culture vulture

SE10

There are very few parts of the capital that combine so many cultural attractions on your doorstep, with a lovely residential feel. But the SE10 postcode is one where you’ll find history, the arts and beautiful homes side by side. From the Cutty Sark, to the National Maritime Museum, to the O2 Arena, you’ll never get bored living here.

You're a caffeine addict

E1

The fashionable areas around Brick Lane, Spitalfields Market and Commercial Street are perfect for finding your next caffeine fix. Whether it’s a quick pick-me-up from Allpress Espresso, freshly roasted beans from Ozone Coffee or people watching from outside the Attendant on Great Eastern Street, the E1 postcode is a coffee lover’s dream.

You’re a keen cyclist

TW10

The sought-after west London postcode of TW10 boasts one of the most picturesque cycling routes along the River Thames from East Twickenham to Teddington and encompasses Richmond Park, which is heaven for cycling enthusiasts. With hills, flats and beautiful views of the resident deer, you’ll never get bored of riding through this royal park.

You’re a bookworm

NW1

What self-confessed bookworm wouldn’t want to live close to the largest library in the world? The British Library next to St. Pancras International houses the biggest catalogue of items of any library on the planet and it’s also home to the Magna Carta. If books are your thing, then the NW1 postcode is for you.

You’re a party animal

W1

From the glitzy nightclubs of Mayfair, to celeb hotspots in Marylebone, to all-night bars in Soho, W1 is where you’ll find London’s best nightlife. Although living in these areas doesn’t come cheap, can you really put a price on being right on the doorstep of the capital’s finest night-time establishments?

You prefer the quieter life

HA4

Still on the underground network but a breath of fresh air compared to the hustle and bustle of central London, the HA4 postcode strikes the right balance for residents looking for convenience as well as a bit of peace and quiet. With parkland in abundance and even spots for outdoor swimming, Ruislip and Eastcote Village are our top picks.

You’re a Parkrun fanatic

SE22

If you’re up bright and early on a Saturday morning to run around your local park with other Parkrun enthusiasts, then the SE22 postcode is perfect for you as it's right in between three running spots. This area of London has the highest concentration of Parkruns in the capital, taking place in Brockwell Park, Dulwich Park and Peckham Rye Park every weekend.

You’re a big fan of brunch

SW12

Balham in south-west London has some of the best-rated brunch places in the capital, as voted by Vogue and Time Out. Milk and Foxlow on Bedford Hill and Brother Marcus on Chestnut Grove near the underground station are where you’ll find throngs of avocado loving, fritter hungry customers queuing every weekend for a taste of London’s finest brunches.

You’re a shopaholic

W11

If you can’t tear yourself away from the shops for more than a few days at a time, Notting Hill’s W11 postcode is exactly where you should live. Not only does Notting Hill provide all types of shopping experiences to satisfy any shopaholic – clothes markets, antiques markets, high street stores and designer boutiques, to name but a few – it’s also in between Westfield London, the largest shopping centre in Europe and Oxford Street, if travelling by tube.
