CSV Postcodes with distance (postcode,km,miles)

Instructions

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.

Dorian, you can copy and paste it in to a text file and save it as filename.csv

How do you export the CSV data?

Is there any chance this could give driving distances rather than point to point? If not, could you point me in the right direction as to where and how I could find that information (eg: OSM?).

Hi Claire, please try : Distance Between UK Postcodes.
By Free Map Tools on 20th May 2019

Is there an option which gives time taken for travelling distance between postcodes?
By Claire on 16th May 2019

Graham, for the doughnut, this is not possible to do on this page, but you can subtract results of A from B to get the same output. In terms of speed, I agree that some searches return 1000\'s of results and web browsers do take their time to process and display all this data. We take the approach that it\'s better to let users do larger searches and wait for their browser to process it rather than put a lower radius limit on searches just to avoid comments such as \"its a bit slow\". Also, 30 miles in a less populated area will be relatively faster than a populated area i.e. the South East.

would it be possible to do a doughnut shape search for say between 10 and 20Km? that would allow for me to build up search areas easier. worked great for me but trying anything over 30 miles is too slow. Thanks

Hi, for the large amounts of data that can come about, the browser will sometimes be under pressure and slow down. We could limit the amount of data or the radius that can be input but then I'm sure there will be complaints about that. So this is due to the sheer amount of data.

option for copying list of postcodes? its so big Its taking forever to scroll and select

Is it possible to only see the first part for the cost code in the list - ie. IP1, rather than IP1 4JJ?
By Barry on 4th October 2018

Carwyn, we have just updated the data. This should now work.

SA33 5EZ from SA33 6EH showing no results. Postcode is correct according to Royal Mail
By Carwyn on 2nd October 2018

This is fantastic, thank you very much for putting this together.

Josh, it is due to the sheer amount of data trying to return. Yes, the website should cope better but at this point in time there is no quick bug fix.

XML parse error on search. Searches indefinitely
By Josh on 25th September 2018

PJ, what search (center and radius size) did you do?
By Free Map Tools on 14th September 2018

I thought it didn't work too but it took 20 mins to find postcodes 20 miles from a location so I think it's just slow.
By PJ on 14th September 2018

Hi, when you say "doesnt seem to work anymore", can you give a bit more detail please?
By Free Map Tools on 13th September 2018
