A collection of postcode districts in the heart of London, England, is referred to as the WC (Western Central) postcode area or simply the London WC postcode region. A very tiny portion of the City of London is included in the high density development region, along with portions of the London boroughs of Camden and Islington and the City of Westminster. Having been created in 1917, the WC1 and WC2 postcode districts are relatively new. Districts with letter suffixes are frequently eliminated when they are used for purposes other than mail sorting, such as for geographic reference and on street signs.
The post towns of WC1 and WC2 are located in London. They made up the WC postal district prior to its creation in 1917. They don’t use any postally recognized localities. Between 1990 and 2007, this postcode area underwent no significant recoding. Post Offices can be found in WC1 at Aldwych and Strand, as well as at Grays Inn, Marchmont Street, Southampton Row, High Holborn, and a close parallel New Oxford Street. The London Post Office Railway’s New Oxford Street stop is where the Western Central District Office is located. West of Farringdon Road, at Mount Pleasant Mail Centre, is where the area’s deliveries are made.
