Built with the Most Complete Datasets
Address Lists are sourced from the most accurate, reliable and updated datasets for the UK
Postcode Address File
The Postcode Address File or PAF is an address dataset maintained by Royal Mail. It contains all known delivery points and postcodes in the UK.
The Postcode Address File provides access to 1.4 million business names, 1.8 million UK postcodes and over 30 million residential and business addresses.
Multiple residences in the UK are sub-premises situated within multiple occupancy buildings.
Each of these premises do not have their own publicly available delivery point. Instead they have a shared delivery point that belongs to a parent premise listed on PAF. The Multiple Residence dataset outlines all 850,000 occupancies.
Not Yet Built
The Not Yet Built (NYB) dataset is outside of the standard PAF. It lists residential and commercial premises that are under construction or in the planning stage.
NYB contains about 500,000 premises which are not (yet) included in the PAF database as they are currently unoccupied.
AddressBase Core is Ordnance Survey's own addressing product. Crucially it adds UPRNs, rooftop geolocations and building classifications to Royal Mail's national address database.

AddressBase Premium is Ordnance Survey's most complete, flagship addressing dataset giving up-to-date information about addresses properties and land areas.

|Line 1||First Address Line. Often contains premise and thoroughfare information. In the case of a commercial premise, the first line is always the full name of the registered organisation. Never empty.|
|Line 2||Second Address Line. Often contains thoroughfare and locality information. May be empty.|
|Line 3||Third address line. May be empty.|
|Premise||A pre-computed string which sensibly combines building_number, building_name and sub_building_name. building_number, building_name and sub_building_name represent raw data from Royal Mail';s and can be difficult to parse if you are unaware of how the Postcode Address File premise fields work together. For this reason, we also provide a pre-computed premise field which intelligently gathers these points into a single, simple premise string. This field is ideal if you want to pull premise information and thoroughfare information separately instead of using our address lines data.|
|UPRN||Unique Property Reference Number (UPRN) assigned by the LLPG Custodian or Ordnance Survey.|
|UDPRN||Royal Mail's Unique Delivery Point Reference Number (UDPRN).|
|Parent UPRN||UPRN of the parent Record if a parent-child relationship exists.|
