Google Maps API - searching for places


Say for example, I'd like to retrieve all museums in London, how would I structure my request?

I could do something like this, but it wouldn't cover London in it's entirety, because there is no radius setting that covers London as a whole.,-0.126446&radius=5000&types=museum&key=apikeyhere

Many Thanks,

Hope the following url help!

It provides radius parameter for a place.

I'm aware of the radius parameter.

But I would want to return all museums in London - how would you do that?!

Radius wont work in this instance, as there is no radius settings to cover the whole of London, without including other places outside.
In the same above URL, there is type specified.

types — Restricts the results to places matching at least one of the specified types. Types should be separated with a pipe symbol (type1|type2|etc). See the list of supported types.

The problem isn't with the type, the problem is with the location.

I want to search the whole of London. There is no radius parameter that will search the whole of London....!
Using Nearby location search, you can search maximum of 50,000 KM radius. That is only way...
Or using radar search you can specify a place, but will list only 200 results at a time...
