Looking for a million-pound pad? Whether you’re dreaming or investing, here is a run-down of the UK’s 7 most expensive postcodes.
Kensington Palace, W8
With properties worth £3 million and several private roads and gardens, many wealthy and famous homeowners reside in and around Billionaire’s Row.
Residents include formula one heiress Tamara Eccleston and the Beckhams.
Due to its proximity to Hyde Park and some of London’s most established haute couture, this is a popular area of London.
Houses here are snapped up very quickly—even when prices are approximately £2million.
Right in the heart of London, near the Thames River, is Chelsea. Like Knightsbridge, houses this well-known area of affluence come in at around £2million.
Chelsea Square alone is valued at £10million. Since 2014, the area has played a starring role in popular TV programme Made in Chelsea.
Notting Hill, W11
Home to the world-renowned Notting Hill Carnival and inspiring memories of Hugh Grant’s 1999 performance of a charmingly dishevelled English man in a film of the same name.
Notting Hill clocks in as a slightly cheaper option for a millionaire pad, with prices sitting just under the £2million mark.
West Brompton, SW10
