The SW2 postcode covers the areas of Brixton and Streatham Hill. It neighbours on Clapham in the West, Streatham in the South, Herne Hill in the West and other parts of Brixton in the North.
SW2 doesn't have too many green spaces but it does neighbour on some of the nicer green areas in South London. Brockwell Park and Brockwell Lido are right at the border of SW2 in the North-East and Tooting Beck common in the South-West.
It is basically divided into four parts by the South Circular Road and Brixton Hill. As such it can also be segmented into these four parts when it comes to leaflet distribution.
The North-Western quadrant of SW2 combines two types of properties. Hard to access flats that are mostly local authority or ex-local authority and Victorian era terraced houses. In our mapping system we have carefully de-selected all the impossible to deliver areas and council housing. This allows us to run the most cost effective service for you where only residential homes are targetted. The Victorian terraced houses here are very easily accessible without too many challenges in the terrain.
The North-Eastern quadrant of SW2 still mostly covers the area of Brixton but the households here are slightly more affluent compared to the previous area we looked at. It has some green areas and also neighbours directly on the above mentioned Brockwell Park. It is full of large Victorian terraced houses. In the most eastern part it does contain a good number of block of flats. These are especially focused around Tulse Hill, lining the whole road. These are generally not possible to deliver to reliably and as such are excluded from our mapping system as well as the council properties around South Circular Road.
Brixton is a lively part of town with many markets, musical venues and businesses. Brixton market shows of the diversity of the area and famous venues like O2 Academy Brixton can be found here as well.
Brixton is well connected as the Brixton Underground Station has the Victoria Line running through it. This provides amazing connection to Central London as Brixton is only 3 tube stops from Green Park.
The parts of SW2 that are further removed from Brixton Station have a good number of bus lines running through them. Streatham Hill and Tulse Hill Stations also provide the local residents with the access to Southern and Thameslink train services.
The character of the postcode changes a little bit as the South-Western quadrant covers the area of Streatham Hill. The architecture is distinctively different from other areas of the postcode. The houses are slightly larger and are mostly Victorian or Georgian semi detached or terraced houses with the occasional larger detached home. It is very close to both Streatham Hill train station and Tooting Bec Common. This has predictably had an effect on the property prices here and as such it is the most affluent part of SW2. Pretty much this whole part of the postcode is easily deliverable and provides a perfect ground for any leaflet distribution campaign looking to target affluent households in South-West London.
