Statistics as at October 2006 [1]

The WC (Western Central) postcode area, also known as the London WC postcode area[2], is a group of postcode districts in central London, England. It includes parts of the London Borough of Camden, City of Westminster, London Borough of Islington and a very small part of the City of London. The area covered is of very high density development. Deliveries for WC1 and WC2 (and for W1) come from the Rathbone Place office.

The current postcode districts are relatively recent divisions of the WC1 and WC2 districts established in 1917. Where the districts are used for purposes other than the sorting of mail, such as use as a geographic reference and on street signs, they continue to be commonly grouped into these two 'districts'.
