The N (Northern) postcode area, commonly referred to as the London N postcode area, is a region of North London, England, that is covered by the London post town. It is a collection of 25 postcode districts that includes 17,429 active postcodes. Parts of the London boroughs of Hackney, Islington, Camden, Barnet, Haringey, and Enfield are included in the area.
The postcode district was first known as London’s N district in 1857. It was organized into 22 districts with numbers in 1917. The Northern Head District was given the number N1, and the remaining districts were numbered in accordance with their principal names, which were listed in alphabetical order. The majority of districts have neighborhoods with unique names. LONDON is the recognized post town for all N postcodes.
The far western portion of the original N1 district was transformed into the new N1C district in 2010 to make room for Kings Cross Central’s redevelopment. The N region additionally has two non-geographic postcode districts: N81 for ballot mailings to Electoral Reform Services in N8, and N1P for PO boxes in N1 or N1C.
The N2-N22 postcode districts are located to its north and are the N1 postcode district’s closest neighbors to downtown London. The River Lea to the east and the Inner Ring Road to the south roughly define the postcode area’s boundaries. The boundary in the west passes through Hampstead Heath and briefly travels along the North Circular Road and Dollis Brook. The northern edge traverses a number of open areas before briefly tracing the A110 road. The postcode region corresponds to parts of the following boroughs in London: Haringey, the majority of Islington, the northwest portion of Hackney, the southeast portions of Barnet, the southern portions of Enfield, and tiny portions of Camden.
