UK Postcode Address & House Price Lookup

Version 1.2     Updated 08/12/2019               Approx 0.8 MB 


This is a simple app I created to get a list of addresses & house price info for selected UK postcodes together with the geo-coordinates and a static Google map for that postcode


It is a cut down version of my commercial UK Postal Address Finder application.


The geocoordinates for the postcode are obtained using code similar to that by Christos Samaras at

The site has a lot of useful code for Access and other platforms


The address and house price data (where available) is extracted from freely available data downloaded from


The static Google map includes a marker indicating the postcode centre.

The map can be modified in various ways:

a)   nudged up/down/left/right

b)   zoomed on a 1-20 scale) where the default = 17

c)   the map style can be altered (roadmap/terrain/satellite/hybrid) with default =hybrid

d)   a full screen 'live' map can also be loaded


When the app is first loaded, you will be prompted to enter a valid Google maps API key (one with billable info). This is required in order to use the app.
