A few weeks ago, Google changed the accuracy at which United Kingdom postcode search results are displayed. So far it you would get results at street level but due to licensing issues with Royal Mail, Google had to pull that and offers only district level accuracy now. So, if you wonder why the UK postcode search puts you a few miles away, that’s the reason and by the looks of it, it’s meant to stay like this. I suggest to search by streetname and house number to pinpoint your location. If that doesn’t work (because Google doesn’t have your address in the database) then just search by city and then drag the marker to your location.
