Matches
01603 123123 | 0207 1234567 | (0208) 123 1234
Non-Matches
123 123132

Most UK telephone numbers can have either 9 or 10 digits after the 0 trunk prefix. The initial 0 is omitted when calling from abroad. 01 and 02 area codes should have parentheses around them if the local number part does not begin with a 0 or 1. 01 and 02 area codes do not have parentheses around them if the local number part begins with a 0 or 1. These are National Dialling Only ranges. All other area codes do not have parentheses around them as the area code is required for all calls. Number formats are expressed as: 2+8 to represent (02x) xxxx xxxx [in 5 areas] or 05x xxxx xxxx or 070 xxxx xxxx. 3+7 to represent (011x) xxx xxxx [in 6 areas] or (01x1) xxx xxxx [in 6 areas] or 03xx xxx xxxx or 08xx xxx xxxx or 0800 xxx xxxx or 09xx xxx xxxx. 3+6 to represent 0500 xxxxxx or 0800 xxxxxx. 4+6 to represent (01xxx) xxxxxx [in 580 areas] or 07xxx xxxxxx. 4+5 to represent (01xxx) xxxxx [in 41 areas]. 5+5 to represent (01xx xx) xxxxx [in 12 areas]. 5+4 to represent (01xx xx) xxxx [in 1 area]. Valid formats include: (011x) - 3+7. (01x1) - 3+7. (01xxx) - 4+6 or 4+5. (01xx xx) - 5+5 or 5+4. (02x) - 2+8. 03xx - 3+7. 05x - 2+8. 0500 - 3+6. 07xxx - 4+6. 070 - 2+8. 08xx - 3+7. 0800 - 3+7 or 3+6. 09xx - 3+7. There are a small number of exceptions such as 0800 1111 and 0845 4647. The UK system is quite complex!

Hi Dave, thanks for your comment Would you say that (\s*\(?0\d{4}\)?\s*\d{6}\s*)|(\s*\(?0\d{2}\)?\s*\d{4}\s*\d{4}\s*) would be a more accurate regex then?

I'm afraid you've got the London telephone codes wrong. Technically speaking, the area code for the whole of London is (020), not (0207) and (0208). The 7 or 8 digit is prefixed to the old 7 digit number. This means that both inner and outer London count as local to each other when dialling e.g. 7123 4567.

^0\d{4}\s?\d{6}\s?|\s?0\d{3}\s?\d{3}\s?\d{4}$ Doesn't allow leading/trailing spaces (as I don't want them!) and also allows the following patterns: 00000 000000 0000 0000000 0000 000 0000 David
