Hints for searching
 

Where we say London, we mean Greater London. UK is UK mainland only (not Northern Ireland)
 

Search by London Street

This will search our database for a London street, you only need supply the first three letters of the street name and we'll look for the rest. Note that we don't want numbers or anything else, just the street name. Also, don't try and abbreviate street or road ie don't use rd or st in the name. If your'e not sure, just use the name without street or road and select the location you want from the list
 

Search By Post Code

This will search our database for a post code. You can enter a post code with or without the space. Partial postcode searching is now supported on the first part of the post code, eg SW18, but the location you get is a rough calculation !
 

Search by UK Place

This will search our database for a UK City, Town or Village, you only need supply the first three letters of the place and we'll look for the rest. Note that we don't have regions eg counties or boroughs.
