For those that are new to London, it is essential that you get to grips with the postcode system. Ads for lettings and jobs often use just the postcode to indicate the location.
Here is a guide of what postcodes correspond to a particular area in London to help you with understanding the jargon in ads.
Bear in mind, that a postcode starting with N means north, S means south, E means east and W means west. So NW means northwest etc. All postcodes in London follow this pattern with the exception of EC and WC which mean East Central (covering the City) and West Central (covering the Strand, Holborn and Bloomsbury).
