Situated within the WC1 and WC2 postcodes are its theatres, some of its museums and academic institutions. Within the EC1 - EC4 postcodes is the Barbican, the City of London and the Bank of England. At one time, most of our national newspapers were situated there, on Fleet Street.
Today, any establishment in the above postcodes is in a sought after address. They are ideally situated for the British Museum, the delights of St. Paul's Cathedral, Covent Garden and Oxford Street. It is no small wonder as to why this part of Central London is popular for hotels and conferences. The amount of hotels, meeting rooms and conference venues speaks for themselves.
