This map of London has been divided into its postcode areas (using the first part of the postcode). The black lines divide the map into broad geographic areas - the letters stand for north, south, east, west and so on - then the white lines divide each geographic area into postcode districts which are numbered. So if an area is in the part of the map marked W, and it is the section marked 1, the postcode for that area is W1.
London's postcode areas have then been listed in two sections:
The first section is a list of the better known and touristy areas of London. These are listed alphabetically with the postcode after.
Then in the following section all the areas of London are listed according to their postcode area.
To find out information about the area that you are interested in go to the postcode listings that follow the map and just click on the postcode area or area name that you want to find out about.
So that you know where in London the main sites are situated, take a look at the map - the tourist areas and well known areas of London are shaded in a dark green, whilst the lesser known and less touristy areas appear as a paler shade of green.
Alternatively, if you are looking for a particular tourist site or attraction you can use the London A-Z that appears at the bottom of the page.
