0207 Area Code

London Telephone Numbers

0207 is not an area code in its own right. The area code is in fact 020, and the following 7 is part of the local number.

So 0207 should actually be written 020 7, although it makes no difference when dialling the number. For more information on 020 numbers, see the page for the 020 area code

The 020 area code covers London and the surrounding area.

Please note that an 020 number does not necessarily come from this location, although the majority do.
People or businesses based outside of this geographical location may still register 020 numbers.
This is often done to give the impression of having a local presence.

The cost of calling an 020 number

When calling from a land line, calls to 020 numbers can cost up to 10p per minute, dependent on the time of day, and there is usually also a call set-up fee.
When calling from mobile phones, calls to these numbers cost between 10p and 40p per minute.

Most land line operators offer inclusive call packages which allow calls free at certain times of the day, or at all times, and most mobile companies include free any-time minutes in the monthly contract payment, or a bundle of minutes for a reduced cost in the form of a top-up credit.
