House prices in one Birmingham postcode have increased six-fold over the past 20 years.

Median prices in B17 8, in Harborne, Birmingham, have risen by 533 per cent from 45,000 in 1995 to 285,000 in 2015.

In B16 0, in Edgbaston, Ladywood, Birmingham, prices were up 439 per cent, from 34,300 in 1995 to 185,000 in 2015, while in B66 3, in Smethwick, Bearwood, Sandwell, prices were up 431% from 26,000 to 138,000.

House prices in one West London postcode have increased 20-fold over the past 20 years, making it the  biggest increase in England and Wales.

Median prices in W1B 1, along Portland Place in Westminster, have risen by 1,875% from 200,000 in 1995 to 3.95m in 2015.

There were 15 postcodes in England Wales where prices have increased ten-fold or more over the past two decades.

Between 1995 and 2015, inflation was 73 per cent, according to the Bank of England, so 1 in 1995 would be worth 1.73 in 2015, meaning house prices in many areas have strongly outpaced inflation.

Figures on house prices come from the Land Registry price paid data, and are based on postcodes with six or more sales in both 1995 and 2015. Areas with fewer sales are shown in the widget but with a warning about the low numbers of sales.

Not all postcodes will return a result in the widget - if there were no house sales in 1995 or 2015, then there is no way to compare, this may be the case for postcodes that relate to groups of houses built during the past 20 years, or very rural areas with few homes and few sales.
