Postcodes for the
United Kingdom

Postcodes, or zipcodes, are an important tool for geographic planning in the United Kingdom. Originally developed to streamline postal delivery, postcodes are now commonly referred to as “the new geography”. They have evolved to become an integral part of the business planning process.

Postcodes for the United Kingdom

Postcodes are a simple but convenient way to locate customers, assets, competitors – in fact, anything with an address. Enriching your address data with coordinates is a process known as geocoding and is the first step in adding Location Intelligence to your data assets located in the United Kingdom.

Postcode centroids (centre points) are suitable for coarse-level searches and geocoding, while postcode regions (polygons) can be highly effective for visualisation purposes.

We provide Postcode Sectors for the United Kingdom, as both centroids and regions, with seamless transitions across borders with neighbouring countries. The data is available in all common GIS data formats.
