Welcome to Towns, Counties, Postcodes, UK!

This simple website is dedicated to sharing, gathering and learning about UK Towns, Counties & Postcodes.

The information on this website has been gathered over years and years of working with projects that required UK based geographical data. I created this website so everyone can access the information, whether it be for educational and/or informational purposes. I hope it proves to be useful.

Whilst great efforts have been spent on trying to keep the data current and valid, sadly, I cannot guarantee the accuracy of any of the information available on this website. Please read the disclaimer for more information.

Overtime, towns and counties have been renamed, merged together, and new postcodes have been created, so cleansing the data is an ongoing battle. If you notice any mistakes or have any additional information, please contact me and I'll make the appropriate update(s) as soon as I can. I thoroughly appreciate all the feedback.
