Find UK Postcodes Inside a Radius
Map of the UK where you can specify a point and a radius to search within and return all outcode postcodes inside the radius.
UK Postcode Radius Search Map
Show Centre Marker? Show Postcode Markers? Only Output Outcodes? Show UK County Borders?
Step 1 : Radius km (maximum = 320km) OR miles (maximum = 200 miles)
CSV Postcodes with distance (postcode,km,miles)
Input a radius to search within in KM or miles. Click on the map or type in an address or postcode on the center of your search. After a delay, the results will appear inside the radius. If you hover over a marker, you will see it's outcode postcode.
Any radius less than 20km will return full postcodes, anything more will return outcodes only.
The list of Post Codes inside the radius will be displayed in the textbox. You can toggle between CSV or new line output by clicking the [Toggle CSV or New line] button above the textbox.

Hi Shafiq, it is done for performance reasons so we are reluctant to provide such an option.

Would be nice to have a check box option to grab full postcodes (regardless of distance)

M1 1AA does not seem to be a valid postcode.
By Free Map Tools on 14/03/2015
using M1 1AA as a radius centre gives back Leicester postcodes for some reason
Excellent, thank you

How do I print?

On 06/02/2015, it now does this on the 2nd textbox. Thanks for the idea.

I note the postcode has the distance ( in KM) attached to it when hovering over the Map. Is there a way of extracting the postcodes AND the distance in the csv file.
Hi Philippa, not directly. You could draw the area yourself as an approximation using Find UK Postcodes Inside a User Defined Area.

Is it possible to have a list of postcodes that fall within 15 miles of the M25 motorway, both inside and outside it?
By Philippa on 03/02/2015
Hi Paul, i'm not 100% sure what you mean. If you want 3 sets of results, you could run the search 3 times. If you don't want duplicates such as the results from the 3 mile radius appearing in all 3, you could subtract the difference to end up with the results between (for example 4 and 5 miles) only.

Hi Anthony, unfortunately this is not possible.

Hi, could it be possible that we can input two or more postcodes at a time?

Brilliant, saved me a lot of work.

Can you give more description about the area in which you want to find Postcodes? You say around the M25 ... is this 1 mile, 2 miles 20 miles from the M25? This tool will return the postcodes in a single radius so even if you have a distance from the M25, it cant be used to search a track around the M25. The best I can think of is use the center of London as the base point, decide an outside edge and inside edge to your search zone. Do 2 searches on this page to find the outside and inside radius (plural), then remove from the larger outside search anything found in the inside search. You should be left with a circular band of postcodes.
