Royal Mail’s Part Postcode Address File (Part PAF)

This instant download contains all every UK Postcode (circa. 1,791,296) and associated street/road name, locality, town name, and grid references. ‘Part PAF’ covers every postcode in the UK and consists of the very same fields you find in Full PAF but less property numbers & names.  The content within the file is updated quarterly to ensure they remain current, and our clients receive an inclusive complete refresh every three months as part of the service, for no additional fee.

This is our second most popular file after Full PAF.  Produced as an alternative to the full PAF file, it is popular as it is firstly much smaller, containing 1.9 million address records rather than the 32 million found on Full PAF, and secondly significantly reduces the licence fee.
