0845 numbers are growing in popularity. This is probably in part because they are a non-geographic number, so they make even the smallest of companies look like a national business. But also because the caller only pays the cost of a local call, and the recipient doesn't pay to receive the call, unlike with 0800 numbers.

Full details can be found on the site which gives you different pricing details whether the number is pointed to a landline or mobile phone, but 0845 numbers are a good compromise between 0800 and premium rate numbers.
