Free Postcode Maps is a website created by Map-Logic Ltd to provide easy to use and free online Postcode maps as a general reference tool.
This site has been made possible thanks to the availability of powerful online mapping engines such as Open Street Maps and the release of appropriate free information from Ordnance Survey and ONS.
Map-Logic Ltd are a UK business based near London, UK specialising in Postcode information and maps with over 40 years experience in mapping systems, Postcodes and direct marketing services.
Our core philosophy is to innovate and deliver the highest standard of customer service and believe Free Postcode Maps will form the foundation for a range of valuable online services and products designed to meet the requirements of many UK businesses.
Our mission is to create accurate and up to date resources that enable businesses to improve planning, increase operational efficiency and reduce costs.
If you have any questions or comments about the site we would love to hear from you.
We have created Free Postcode Maps as an online, easy to use reference site for the latest Postcode boundaries using Open Street Maps and Google Maps. We hope to develop the site to build useful mapping tools for businesses and personal users. If you have any requests, just let us know via the contact form.
You can slide the map using your mouse (or finger on mobile devices) and zoom in and out using the + and – buttons in the top left of the map window. You can also double click on the map to zoom in. As you zoom in, more detailed Postcode boundaries will be shown from Postcode Areas such as AB, to Postcode Districts such as AB1 and finally to Postcode Sectors such as AB1 1 at the most detailed levels. You can also click the Map Options menu to the left of the screen to search for a specific town or Postcode or use the menu option in the top left to select from a list of Towns, Counties or Postcode Areas.
The maps on the website are free and our intention is that they will always be free for general reference and viewing on the website. However, we do have visitors who would like a Postcode map for their office wall to plan sales territories or franchise areas or would like lists of addresses for a specific geographic area for planning leaflet distribution and so on. These additional products and services obviously do have material and times costs associated with them and therefore associated fees do apply.
There are some limitations to how many boundaries we can show at one time – mainly because showing District or Sector boundaries for the entire country on a single national map makes the map unreadable! So showing the District or Sector boundaries for the more detailed zoom levels is the simplest way of doing this. If you have any comments or suggestions for alternative methods we would love to hear from you..
The Postcode boundaries are built from the latest Ordnance Survey and ONS information which is updated every three months. We believe this makes Free Postcode Maps the most up to date online Postcode mapping resource currently available.
The Postcode boundaries are built by hand using techniques that ensure the boundaries follow geographic features such as roads, rivers or railways. This has been an on-going task which is now complete but please note we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the Postcode boundaries as they are our best interpretation of the information currently available.
Currently you cannot print maps from our site but you can create the area you want and then click the Buy This Map button to ask us to print it and send it directly to you. There is a cost for this service which includes emailing you a proof of the map before we print it to ensure it meets your requirements and then printing the map on high quality paper, encapsulating the map in a water-proof and protective plastic coating and then shipping the map to you rolled in a map tube via Royal Mail. You can also browse our maps on the site or visit our Map-Logic site.
Please let us know! We are continually developing this site and want to add features that everyone wants. Please send your suggestions and requests via our contact form.
