About the API

The Databases UK API allows developers to quickly access large data without the need to download, compile or maintain any files locally. Using a URL and API key exclusive to your account, you can receive complete data in JSON, XML or CSV format instantly.

Website developers and application developers can now focus on their application code without worrying about data sourcing.
