    Hey, calling all Londoners here. Or, people that, er, know about it anyway. Ok, where would you say are the most desirable places to live in London? Like which boroughs are the most sought after/most prestigious. I know of a few, but I'd just like conformation really. Postcodes would be great and the name of the area; oh and why you think it so.

    Thanks a lot!

    Chelsea, the nice parts of Hampstead, South Kensington, Knightsbridge, Notting Hill, Primrose Hill, Mayfair, etc.

    Anyhows, why do you want to know this anyway? You can find out the most desirable places to live in London with a few minutes of Googling and get post codes, etc, and you could get them listed by the average house-price per area to give you some idea about their exclusivity.

    Camberwell SE5.

    Includes highlights such as the Cornner Shop, Dog Kennel Hill, Sainsburys, and in general is a great place to live.

    If I ever got rich, I'd rather be tortured to within an inch of my life (still conscious though) then killed in some obscure nasty way a la Final Destination than live in one of those areas.

    Since when did sky-high prices and a pretence to match equal desirable?

    When people want something badly enough (desire it) they will pay a higher price for it. Thus the high prices show a certain desirability.

    EC1A is the most desirable part of The City - why would that offend you?

    I don't know. I'm not that familiar with postcodes. I just know ones in my immediate area because that's where most of my friends live, and I've never had a reason to write a letter to EC1A.
