Map of every McDonald's restaurant in the UK

The map below shows the position of all 1197 McDonald's restaurants dotted around the United Kingdom, roughly correlating with population density.

The main reason for putting the map together wasn't to gain any statistical insight into the proliferation of McDonald's restaurants, but to instead see what the spoils of exploration into the inner workings of McDonald's Restaurant Locator looked like.

If you would also like to do something with the location data for the McDonald's restaurants then you are able to use the following...

  1. Created a Python script to automate the downloading and parsing of the most recent McDonald's Restaurant data.
  2. Uploaded the resulting CSV of the McDonald's restaurant data to Pastebin.

The CSV produced by the python script contains the following data about each restaurant...

  • Store Name
  • Street
  • Town/City
  • Postal Code
  • Phone Number
  • Latitude
  • Longitude

Update: I've also created a map of all KFC restaurants in the UK
