Content Store

The Content Store is the store for all published content on GOV.UK. When given a path, it responds with the content that should be displayed on that path.

Limitations:

  • Not all content is in the content-store yet. There are pages that don’t use the publishing platform and can’t be found in the content store (at the time of writing, pages about past prime ministers).
  • For some pages the content store will not return all the content on the page (an organisation page for example)

While it is primarily intended for the use of the frontend apps, it is also exposed externally at https://www.gov.uk/api/content/<path>, where <path> is the full path of the item on GOV.UK.

For more detailed documentation on the API exposed by the Content Store, you can read through the GOV.UK Content API Documentation.
