This tool can be used to find cities and towns within a particular radius of a central location. Note, there is no clear way to determine what is a town or city on a global scale so the results on this page may include or exclude some places. Get in contact if you see a big mistake and we will do our best to update the system.


  1. Select a radius to search within ... 1km, 5km, 10km, 20km or 50km
  2. Select a centre point by either
    • Type an address and click / tap Search

    • Click / tap on the map to indicate the center of the search
  3. Once the search is complete, you can see the list of towns and cities below the map. You can also tap on a marker of a result to find more details


The search radius has a limit of 50km. This cannot be increased.

Comments For This Page

Would it be possible to add feature to select the levels (sizes) of the places to get more or less result of our choice? I mean google maps has parameters like "locality", "sublocality", "postal_code", "administrative_area_level_1-5", "sublocality_level_1-5".

Hi, the radius input is now more flexible. Note it has a limit of 50km.

Would it be possible to add a feature where we can enter a specific distance instead of 5/10/20/50 etc. Like the tool btw, use it everyday at work.

Thanks. Yes, there was an issue. Now resolved.

Does the miles/km change actually work? It seems to return the same values either way.

Thanks Free Map, highly appreciate the responses...

We can only output the English version of the names unfortunately.

Mmmm they appear in the map in the language of my choice, but the output in the div_output is still in English... Any other suggestions?

Hi, to get the map labels in a different language, you can set your preferred language in your browser. The map will then adapt to suit this.

Can you please add an option to select the language that the towns/cities names appear in? Like if choose French, they will appear as if am using the French Google Maps Thanks in advance for a very useful tool:)

Hi John, what location are you using for the center of your search?
By Free Map Tools on 21st September 2017

Hey guys, on the following tool: Can you add a custom radius distance?
By John on 20th September 2017

The 20KM option doesn't work.

Hi, there are no plans for integration with Layar. Can I ask if and how it would benefit you?
By Free Map Tools on 3rd July 2017

Hi guys, Is there any plan to implement it in Layar?
On 1st July 2017

lyn, thanks for the feedback. We will look in to this.

Very useful for planning events. Having post/zip codes attached to the towns/cities would make it even more useful as could reference bureau of stats data.
