The central postcode for any South West London property search would be SW1, home to the Houses of Parliament, Whitehall and Westminster Village, as well as the smart residential and retail enclaves of Knightsbridge, South Kensington and Belgravia. Closer to the river are Victoria Station and Pimlico home of the Tate Britain art gallery. The area is split into three principle London boroughs: Westminster, The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, and Hammersmith and Fulham.
By contrast the gentle, leafy villages that also populate the South West of the city continue to be a major attraction to those keen to extract themselves from the hustle and bustle of Central London. Life here retains much in the way of infrastructure that city life provides. Barnes, Richmond, Wimbledon, Putney and Kew are all within a short journey on London’s excellent public transport system, yet you are more likely to feel a greater sense of space living here than you would in the city. These villages surround wonderful green spaces such as Kew Gardens, Richmond Park, and Wimbledon and Putney Commons. As a result of the everlasting popularity of these areas, with the families they attract, they are home to some of the best primary and secondary (state or private) schools in the Greater London area.
