WC1N, W10 and WC2N revealed as London's most polluted postcodes

WC1N, W10 and WC2N have been revealed as the most polluted postcodes in London, according to a new study.

Thousands of local groups, business and communities collected data for a year-long 'Map London' programme, organised by CleanSpace which generated more than 15 million air pollution readings.

The data revealed:

  • The most polluted postcodes in London are WC1N, W10 and WC2N
  • The most polluted street in London is Bishops Bridge Road, W2
  • London’s air pollution is worse in winter months

A daily spike between 8pm and midnight also sees anyone who enjoys London's nightlife exposed to high levels of pollution, both indoors and outdoors.

The aim of the Map London campaign was to help Londoners see the air they breathe both indoors and outdoors.

We hope the data that we have collected will help people avoid pollution hotspots and allow us to better understand how air pollution impacts people’s health and in turn help Londoners lead healthier lives.
