Quick and easy telephone dialling code information
UK area code 01632 is reserved for use by TV and film productions that require fake British telephone numbers.
Producers are encouraged to use numbers beginning 01632 when they require a non-working number to be shown or spoken during a fictional programme or film. They are the UK equivalent of the fictitious '555' numbers used in American productions.
Some fictitious numbers are also set aside within the area codes for major cities whose codes are more widely-recognised by viewers. There are, for example, series of dummy numbers available for fictional use within the London (020) and Manchester (0161) area codes.
Fictional 01632 numbers are normally assumed to have six digits after the code and are displayed in the format (01632) xxxxxx.
