Worksheet Overview

You are planning a holiday from London to the European cities listed in the distance chart below. You will want to compare how far away the cities are for your trip.


The following distance chart shows the direct distances between certain European cities in kilometres.


Looking at the chart, have a go at finding the distance between London and Dublin using these steps to help:

1. Locate London in the left-hand column of the chart.

2. Next find Dublin by looking across the top row of the chart.

3. The final step is to find the box where the two cities meet both across and down on the chart, so the answer is 463 km. 


Notice also that the reverse distance between Dublin and London is the same.
