York Area Code

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


The York area code is just one of the many area codes that follow the (01XXX) XX XXXX area code pattern. This formation of numbers was allotted to York when the PhONEday event happened in April 1995. A new area code number sequence was designated to York to address the pressing concerns of telephone number exhaustion. The depletion of telephone number supplies is not just the sole problem of the city of York but is also experienced by the whole of United Kingdom. This new area code pattern resulted to the establishment of the 1905 area code as York’s official area code. Other places that are encompassed by this new area code include Acomb, Elvington, Escrick, Flaxton Moor, Strensall and other neighboring towns and communities.


The area code formation that was given to represent the York area code is part of the area codes that ranges from 01200 to 01998. Since the 01905 area code is within its range, it is affected by the rules that govern this specific area code. Area codes that are included have area codes that are made up of 4 digits. The digit 0 that appears before the 1905 area code is not included in the count because it is its trunk code. The number 0 must always be included in dialing to a certain areas that employs UK area codes.


The local numbers of this area code pattern will either be comprised of 5 or 6 numerals depending on the expanse of a given locations territory and the number of telephone subscribers in that area. Regions that have higher number of phone subscribers have 6 numerals as its local number. Since York has a large geographical area and a relatively high number of telephone subscribers, York local numbers contains 6 figures.

Combining the quantity of the York area code and York local numbers would result to 10 figures. Technically, calling York local numbers would require the caller to dial 10 digits. But in reality, callers must key in 11 figures. The additional number that they must input is the trunk code. Failing to do would not connect the call to the intended receiver. All of these numbers must be correctly dialed in order for the call to get through. Callers must also keep in mind that the former York area code is still being used by other establishments. Forgetting to dial the additional number 1 would connect still their call but not to the recipient that they intended to call to.


Changes in the area code resulted to an obstructed flow of communication. There are callers who do not know that the area codes of York are not interchangeable. They are the ones that would still input the former area code of York instead of the new one, resulting in lost profits for the company of which the call was intended for.
