Financial Times

The FT publishes gilt prices in the 'Companies and Markets' section of the paper. The full table appears in the Saturday edition with shorter tables appearing during the week.

The FT's Data Archive provides pdf copies of the current year's tables. Select a date and choose the report for 'FT500, Fixed incomes, Commodities, Interest rates'.

UK Debt Management Office

The Debt Management Office provides the latest closing prices and yields and a database of historical gilt prices from 12 July 1996 to the present. The database can be used to generate a list of reference prices by business date and includes the ISIN Code, redemption date, clean price, dirty price, accrued interest, yield, and modified duration.

The website states that 'For a given gilt the reference price is not intended to give a market price at which it could be traded, but provides an indicative price.'
