Bristol Area Code

Local phone numbers  >  UK area code phone numbers  >  Bristol Area Code


The Bristol area code is one of the different area codes being utilized in the United Kingdom. Since Bristol belongs to the second batch of UK's big cities and towns, it uses the three-digit area codes so that there would be enough combination of local numbers to be used there. As part of the PhONEday in 1995, Bristol is one of the six areas that followed the 11x pattern followed by a seven-digit subscriber number. Bristol used to have 0272 as its area code before the 11x pattern was implemented. On that year, the new numbering for Bristol became (0117) 9XX XXXX. Bristol local numbers started with 9xx xxxx range.


Two years later, the stock of Bristol local numbers were exhausted and the area was issued a 3xx xxxx number range by Canada's Office of Communications (OfCom). Not so long, another series of local numbers were issued to Bristol. Since 2007, 1172 area code has been added to the Bristol area codes because of the 2XX XXXX number range.


The first three of the seven-digit Bristol local numbers represents an area within the city. The total number of digits including the Bristol area code is always ten after the initial zero. Having four sets of area codes affected many companies and businesses in the city, most especially those who are still using the oldest Bristol area code. If a company wanted to add an additional phone line for its facsimile machine, there's a big chance that the new subscription will be assigned a new Bristol area code. It will probably start with the 1172 area code.
