Country-specific Django helpers for the United Kingdom.

branch: master


Country-specific Django helpers for the United Kingdom.


This app has been superseded by the newly created django-localflavor app which recombines all the different country locaflavors again (after having been removed from Django). Development and maintenance of this app has stopped and is only left online as a reminder for the users of those apps. It will be removed after grace period of 1 Django release (~spring 2014).

What's in the United Kingdom localflavor?

  • forms.GBPostcodeField: A form field that validates input as a UK postcode. The regular expression used is sourced from the schema for British Standard BS7666 address types at
  • forms.GBCountySelect: A Select widget that uses a list of UK counties/regions as its choices.
  • forms.GBNationSelect: A Select widget that uses a list of UK nations as its choices.

See the source code for full details.

About localflavors

Django's "localflavor" packages offer additional functionality for particular countries or cultures.

For example, these might include form fields for your country's postal codes, phone number formats or government ID numbers.

This code used to live in Django proper -- in django.contrib.localflavor -- but was separated into standalone packages in Django 1.5 to keep the framework's core clean.
