Formatting an 01273 number

Local telephone numbers in the Brighton area are six digits long. An 01273 number should be displayed in the format: 01273 xxxxxx

For international callers, use: +44 1273 xxxxxx

As local calls in the area must always be dialled using the full number including area code, it is best not to display the code in brackets.

Local calls require full number

Since 1 October 2014 all calls within the 01273 area have had to be made by dialling the full 11-digit number including area code. Calling locally using just the six-digit local number is no longer possible.

See: Areas codes without local dialling.
