The majority of east London, England is covered by the E (Eastern) postcode region, sometimes referred to as the London E postcode area. West of the tidal Thames, it shares a border with the N postcode area. Following the shutdown of the East London mail center, the IG and RM postcode regions’ mail is also sorted at the Romford Mail Centre.
The E and NE postcode areas, which had been established in 1858 and 1866, respectively, were originally combined to produce the current E postcode region. The most significant parish, geographical feature, or aspect of the built environment determined the postal districts’ alphabetical order in 1917. The district names were not included in the postal address as of 2004.

Due to high demand, the E1 postcode district’s sector 9 was divided and recoded in 1999 to create the Wapping-area E1W postcode district,[4] although the rest of the district did not receive an additional character. E1 and E1W continue to be grouped together as one “district” when districts are used for anything other than sorting mail, like as a geographic reference and on street signs. Two non-geographic postcode districts, E77 and E98, are available in the E postcode area for high-volume business users. On Whitechapel Road, the Eastern District Office served as the eastern terminus for the defunct London Post Office Railway, which has been dormant since 2003. The Paddington Head District Sorting Office was reached by rail after traveling 10.5 kilometers (6.5 miles).

Since 1985, the fictional E20 postcode has been used in the television soap opera EastEnders. Since 2011, it has been a legitimate postcode that was created from the E15 postcode and exclusively borders it. The buildings there are advertised and frequently self-identify as Olympic Park and Queen Elizabeth Park. It comprises renowned athletic facilities constructed for the 2012 Summer Olympics.

The River Thames forms the southern boundary of the E1 postcode area. The southern postcode areas E6, E14, and E16 also feature riverfront properties. The North Circular Road and the River Roding help define the boundary in the east. The combined area of the London boroughs of Waltham Forest, Newham, and Tower Hamlets makes up the postcode area. The postcode region also includes a tiny portion of the Epping Forest District (E4), the western portions of Redbridge (E11, E12, and E18), Barking and Dagenham (E6), and the eastern portion of the London Borough of Hackney.
