We offer our data lists as CSV or XLS files. These file formats can be imported directly into an SQL database. These data lists can also be viewed and pre-processed in Excel.

In 1959, postcodes were introduced in the United Kingdom. The structure of a UK postcode consists of two alphanumeric codes, each consisting of three (or four) characters. One or two letters indicate the city or region, followed by one or two digits for the city/area or neighborhoods within that city/region. A space is followed by a number and two letters denoting the streets and sides of the street.
