Coordinate converter

Convert British National Grid (BNG) formerly known as the National Grid Reference (NGR) to latitude and longitude (lat/long WGS84) or vice versa.

See The National Grid FAQs for an explanation of how the BNG works.

This coordinate converter uses the Oracle Spatial 10g coordinate transformations using approved (recommended) EPSG codes for BNG, WGS84 and ETRS89, which are 27700, 4326 and 4258 respectively. Technical details can be provided on request.

Convert BNG to lat/long

Enter a British National Grid six figure number for both easting and northing to return decimal latitude and longitude.
For example, 429157, 623009 will return -1.54, 55.5 WGS84 (SRID 4326)
