Introduction

UK and Northern Ireland Postcodes

The UK postal system uses postcodes to help with automating the sorting and delivery of mail. This is made up of a 2-part code, an out code and an in code. As the out code is the most significant part of the system, it can be used to obtain a rough area level break up of the UK. There are approximately 2971 out codes and approximately 1.74M full postcodes (out code + in code).

Purpose

The uses of these out codes and lat/long values include mapping applications such as:

List Status

Outcode Postcodes Current List : 2974

Full UK Postcode Current List : 1741532

Hi Robert, yes there are no (little) Isle of Man postcodes. This is something we are looking to get sorted.

Brilliant resource, thank you. Seems to be missing IM7 (Isle-of-Man) data. Many thanks, Robert

James, point taken. Thanks for the feedback.

Hi, great site thanks. Is it worth adding an extra bullet point note under the full postcodes files to state that it includes non geographic postcodes and what their long lat values show as?
By James on 5th April 2017

IS there anywhere that provides mapping for historic/discontinued postcodes to their replacement?
By Mark on 4th April 2017

Hi, there is no charge.

Hi, great site. Am I allowed to use the post code data in my professional work? Are there any limitations on using this data for clients? Thanks
By Oliver on 28th September 2016

Hi James, no, not at hand. Its a case of taking the large postcode file and applying a filter.
