Maps of postal geographies, electoral wards and enumeration districts; any digital boundary sets

ONS Geography produces a number of small scale maps of larger spatial units - eg. local authorities in the UK, national parks in Great Britain, and various others. These can be downloaded free of charge from the Open Geography portal.

We do not however produce maps of postal geography or of small areas such as electoral wards or enumeration districts, which can only be covered by large scale mapping.

ONS Geography also produce digital boundary sets for a wide range of geographies. The boundaries can be downloaded in shp file format directly from the Open Geography portal. 
Within the Open Geography portal there is a toll called the 'Data Extract Tool' that allows customers to download extracts of boundaries in several different formats.  For further information see the FAQs page on the Open Geography portal.

Where can I get maps of postal geographies?

Paper maps and digital boundary sets are available from a number of suppliers including Geoplan and Ordnance Survey.
