CitySocialising reveal London’s Top Ten most Sociable postcodes

Press releases

South West London has been revealed as the most sociable corner of the capital, thanks to new data published for the first time today.

Data, complied by CitySocialising, the UK’s largest socialising network for meeting new people, reveals the top ten London postcodes for outgoing young professionals to meet up offline.

Five SW postcodes feature in the London top ten and make up the venue for a quarter of all nights out planned by the site’s 65,000 London members during 2011.

The West End topped the poll naturally enough with more Londoners enjoying nights out in W1 than any other single postcode zone.

Nearby WC1 was the second most popular postcode zone for Londoners to head to when it came to hooking up with pals.

Docklands and the area around Canary Wharf helped E14 clinch the number three spot for East London while SW11 was the top south west London zone at number four in the top ten.

Islington’s popular Upper Street was one of the attractions, which helped north London’s N1 become the fifth most popular postcode zone for a night out.

Fashionable Wimbledon was also a magnet for Londoners looking to spend their leisure hours in the leafy suburbs and its postcode of SW19 was the sixth most popular destination in the capital.

In terms of London’s regions West London, with 20% of all nights out came a close second to the South West, with East London(13%), South East London (12%) and North London (12%) also scoring well.

Interestingly those in the capital were also found to be by far the most prolific in terms of online interaction, sending more than double the number of messages on CitySocialising than the site’s national average.

Jenny from Wimbledon says South West London is a fantastic place to go out and meet new people.

She said: “When people think of Wimbledon they naturally think of tennis but there is so much more to the area than the All England Club.

“There are also some fantastic bars and restaurants and lots of open leafy space. There’s loads to do here so it’s a great place to have fun with friends.”
