Here are some links to websites that may be of interest
If this site hasn't met all your postcode needs, here are some others that might help.
ONS postcode data
- The Office for
National Statistics aggregates OS postcode data and data from other sources and provides it in a variety of formats. The source of the majority of the data here
OS Open Data
Originally I used this for most of the postcode data here, but the ONS data is better now I think. They provide a number of other UK geographical
datasets freely available for download (I'm using their road data here).
UK Postal Address Finder
A powerful Access application built on this and other data. There is a free version and a paid for version with even more features.
Postcode data mangler
Tony Wilk has written a useful utility to take the postcode data from this site and do various useful things, primarily to let you manipulate it in
Excel without running into its file size limits.
Royal Mail PAF
If you find the postcode data here is not detailed enough for your needs (if you need to get address information for instance),
then you probably want to be looking at the Royal Mail's PAF dataset. This generally costs money but is available for free to small charities and micro businesses
Postcode boundary polygons
Open Door Logistics provide free Shapefile polygons defining the boundaries of UK postcode areas, districts and sectors.
They also provide software for mapping sales territories
- Build a custom postcode map or download one of their standard ones
Other postcode sites
There are lots of sites providing UK postcode data. Here are a couple of them, there are probably more but I got bored looking at sites
that are just republishing the ONS postcode data without adding any value

My Amazon wish list
Perhaps you've become a multimillionaire thanks to something you found on this site,
perhaps you're an internet shopping addict who's run out things to buy for yourself.
Whatever the reason, if you'd like to buy me something, here's what I'd like.
