Since 1999 the London dialing code and numbers have been:

  (020) xxxx xxxx

Following the exhaustion in the '7xxx xxxx' and '8xxx xxxx' ranges a
decade ago in c.2005, the '3xxx xxxx' London blocks have been used for
issuing new numbers.[*]  See:

  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/020

If you moved into a new house in London, you too would likely receive
a '3xxx xxxx' number.
