Find Cities Within Radius Map



Find towns and cities within km of



Distance Alphabetical



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 Search with an empty text box to find your current location
    • 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

Awesome tool, THANK YOU! My only issue is that I need things within a 100 radius of a specific town, I can only get up to 31 miles. Larger distance covered would be great.

That's truly awesome ! I just hope it could not take distance but time as well. For example, two towns can be far appart but quick to reach if there's a highway in between

Is there any way to show a csv of data rather than towns so long as a postcode is added for the location?

doesn't create a .csv file

This is an amazing tool for what I'm trying to figure out. Could it be increased to accept increments of 50km? Need to find 100 and 150km radius

Hi Alison, there are no plans to increase the maximum radius size.
By Free Map Tools on 17th February 2020

When will the mile radius be increased to 100? Need it now! Thanks in advance!
By Alison on 17th February 2020

A new page has just been added : Find Cities and Towns Inside an Area.
By Free Map Tools on 9th February 2020

Hi, there is no tool/page available right now for this. It sounds feasible. Adding this to the "Free Map Tools To-Do List"...
By Free Map Tools on 5th February 2020

Is there a way to use this with like the area calculator so you can map your own zone and get the cities instead of just a radius?
On 31st January 2020

Can the distance be increased to 60 mi at some point?
On 22nd January 2020

Love it. Great job guys!!!
By HotMildHoe on 6th January 2020

I LOVE IT. The only thing I'm missing is the inclusion of the state name with the city.
On 23rd December 2019

Excellent tool THANK YOU.
On 19th December 2019

This tool is amazing! It would be super helpful though if you could filter by State as well, so you're not getting Cities outside of the current state you want to get a list for.
By Rob on 17th December 2019

The fact that the max distance is so small makes this tool very niche and not super useful
