If you want to find out the distance between counties or cities then your best bet is a specialist website.The site www.distance-calculator.co.uk is pretty comprehensive.
You just need to select the countries that you are interested in, then the cities in those countries and it will do the rest. Although the fastest way of measuring distances it is unclear how precise the figures are.

A good old fashioned map is another option. You need to use official maps for the greatest accuracy though; ones from the country’s official mapping agency.
In the UK, this would be Ordnance Survey. Once you have got the map you need to use the scale information to calculate distances.

Map scales may be expressed in words, as a ratio or as a fraction. So you will see it expressed on the map like this: 'one centimetre to one hundred metres'   
or    1:10,000  
or    1/10,000
To use this scale, measure the distance between two points with a ruler then make the appropriate calculation.So, if ‘point A’ is 10cm from ‘point B’, the distance using the scale above would be 1,000m. With a map, always remember you are measuring the most direct route between the two points. Roads and paths between two points have to navigate boundaries in the landscape so will be longer.

To measure the distance between two points if you are travelling on foot, use a surveyor’s wheel. It’s a wheel that you roll along and it clicks every time is rotates a full 360 degrees.
The wheels come in different sizes but, by way of example, a 1m wheel will click every time it rotates fully. If you hear 50 clicks when you walk between two points, the distance you have travelled is 50m. Clearly this is only a rough form of measurement.

  You are living in the era of internet where all kind information is available at the click of the mouse so finding the information about the distance between two places is never going to be a difficult task. I am going to give you the address of a website that can provide you the service of not only the distance between two places but also the driving direction with the use of which you can reach to the place. The address of the website is following: www.google.co.uk/maps.

  There are many ways in finding out the mileage between one location to another. Previously you would have seen different equipments, used to calculate mileage between two different places. There were books available which used to give you an idea of the mileage. Those books were not a proper source to know the mileage, because they did not provide accurate figure. Mostly electronic mileage calculators were used to calculate mileage. These mileage information sources have not been updated since 1982. You will find new flyovers and some bridges that are raised or increased by the length.

  As the technology improved the mileage calculators became advanced, you may find a compatible calculator in the market. DTOD is a new device which is used to calculate mileage. This device is replacing the older calculators and other household methods used for calculating the mileage. This new system helps you to get the mileage within fractions on time. There are websites that can help you to calculate the mileage information. For your convenient, we have activated a site that will help you to calculate mileage within seconds.
