How to find a dialling code

Dialling codes are the digits at the beginning of all UK landline phone numbers that identify the call's regional location. They’re also known as area codes or STD codes, though the latter has fallen out of fashion.

For example, if you had a York number of 01904 555 555, the first section (01904) is the dialling code. For international telephone numbers, the area code will usually have either two zeros (00) or a plus symbol (+) in front of it.

Our Dialling Code search function is easy to use, simply type in the information you have into one of the boxes and we'll provide you with the correct area code and location for that number. This information is provided by public data sources including Directory Enquiries.

Search for as many STD codes as you need – each area code search is free. Potential reasons you may need to use our Dialling Code search include:

  • Checking where someone is calling from.
  • Researching how to dial a number in a different country.
  • Looking up the area code for someone who hasn’t provided a complete telephone number.
