List of Postcode Districts

The list of Postcode Districts covers all 1.8 million UK Postcodes however excludes the last three digits of the postcode (Postcode Sector & Postman's Walk - example UB7 7EB, excluding the "7EB" bit that typically represents a collection of joining streets).

As approved distributors and value added resellers, we have created this subset data file using Royal Mail and Ordnance Survey source files and have simplified their RAW data to such an extent that we are able to offer sub sets of their files cheaper than if your ordered direct.

The file will be supplied to you under a Royal Mail and or Ordnance Survey licence for 12 months unlimited use. During this time you will receive quarterly updates.

Coverage

The list of Postcode Districts data covers the United Kingdom.

Supply Format

The data is supplied as a Comma Separated Variable (CSV) delimited text file using double quotes by default. This field format will open very easily using almost any software application including but not limited to Excel, Word, Notepad, Access, SQL etc.  Due to the size of the file, older versions of Excel may not be an option as Excel limits any file size to around 65,000 rows / records.

Delivery

The list of Postcode Districts is by default emailed at the time of order using a secure download link delivery method.  If you require the data supplied in another format then we will be more than happy to accommodate you where reasonable to do so at no extra cost.
