Find any address in the UK
To begin, start typing as much of the address that you have, e.g. part of a street, town or postcode.
Use this tool to find or complete an address or postcode for any location.
This free tool is a service that can calculate or complete an address using a partial match. Therefore, if you need the postcode to a particular address for anywhere in the UK (or beyond), this will prove useful.
As you type into the text box, the autocomplete shows predictions based on your text, displaying matched addresses in the dropdown list. On clicking the selection in the dropdown, the box on the right will display the full matched address and postcode.
The full address will appear in the table above.
About this tool
The service looks up the address from Google's excellent geocoding API, allowing you to autocomplete an address using type-ahead-search behaviour.
It's a useful tool if you don't know the full address for a business, individual or organisation.

Deciphering Crime Rates - a Deep Dive Into UK Postcode Analysis
Ever wondered about the crime rate in your UK postcode? You're not alone. We've dug deep into the data, uncovering trends and patterns that'll make your head spin.
Death of the High Street?
The BBC reports that despite councils' attempts to kurb them, the UK's high streets have seen a huge growth in fast food outlets. Could this mark the death knell for the Great British high street, and what can we do about it to halt its decline?
Discrimination by Postcode
You really couldn't make it up, could you? Some of the country's most vulnerable people are missing out on their weekly £25 Cold Weather Payment, just because the system that's in operation is discriminating against them because payments are based on postcode, rather than geographic location.
The Redesign is Underway
Well, the current website was absolutely in dire need of a good redesign - from the ground up. So I set out to pull it all apart and get it up and running again to become the most comprehensive guide to every postcode in the UK. And it's been a long, tough job from start to finish - and quite possibly the biggest project I've ever undertaken.
Postcode Area helps people in all areas of the UK to locate and find postcode data and information for cities and towns in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.
