Map Showing the Walking Distance Between Two UK Postcodes


Postcode 1 Postcode 2


Measure in : miles km
Distance as the Crow Flies : As the crow Flies
Walking Distance : Land Transport

How to Use Walking Postcode Tool

Type in the first and second postcode then click the Show button. The map will then display the location of the two postcodes and also show the routes for:

  • As the crow flies - the straight distance between the points
  • By walking

You will also see the distance displayed below the map for the distance as the crow flies and also by foot. You can then type in more postcodes and click the show button to see more distances.

Note : This Postcode distance finder will measure the distance between full UK Postcodes.

Format of Outward Code / Out Code

Use the format "A(A)0(0)(A)", where:

  • A is a character
  • 0 is a digit
  • () means optional

Format of Full UK Postcode

Use the format "A(A)0(0)(A)_0AA", where:

  • A is a character
  • 0 is a digit
  • () means optional
  • _ is a space

So any input of 2,3 or 4 characters is assumed to be an Out Code format and anything longer than 4 characters is assumed to be a full UK postcode.
