About United Kingdom Postcodes

UK postcode data depicts the boundaries of all United Kingdom districts. These districts designate an area with a select number of addresses, or a single delivery point. Postcode districts are used by the Royal Mail postal service to aid in efficient mail routing across the United Kingdom.

The initial postcode system was developed to divide London—and other large cities in the UK—into smaller subdivisions. Today, UK postcodes encompass approximately 29 million delivery points.

UK Postcode Structure

UK postcodes consist of 5-7 alphanumeric characters, and are separated into two parts by a single space. The first part is the outward code, and it specifies an area and district of the UK. This is followed by a space and the inward code. The inward code assists in postal delivery within a district by specifying a sector and unit—for example a street, property, address, or organization.

  • The outward code consists of 2-4 alphanumeric characters. First, the postcode area is alphabetically represented by either one or two letters—for example, “L” represents Liverpool and “EH” is used for Edinburgh. This is followed by a district represented by either 1-2 digits, or a digit and a letter.

  • The inward code is always 3 characters in length, and it represents a district and unit. Examples of inward codes are “0NY” or “8JQ”.

UK Postcode Range

The current postcodes in the United Kingdom range from sectors AB1 0 – ZE3 9. Postcodes in the AB1 0 sector cover the areas of Aberdeen, Scotland. ZE3 9 postcodes represent areas within Grutness — a small settlement on the main island of the Shetland Islands.
