How to calculate the walking distance between postcodes and destination in QGIS?

I have the following shapefiles:

  • 1 layer containing the destination;
  • 1 layer containing 1,000 postcodes.

I've tried Directions to Points in the ORS Tool set but it does not handle multi-point layers. Is there another way to calculate the walking distance?

    Have you had a look at the official tutorial? docs.qgis.org/3.4/en/docs/training_manual/vector_analysis/… – Erik May 10 at 14:09
  • Thanks for your reply. I have tried those options however, it will return travel cost not travel distance... Are you aware of any other tools by any chance that return the actual travel distance in the output attribute table? Thanks! – Curious Girl May 10 at 14:22

    The documentation states, that, if you choose shortest as path type to calculate, you'll get a distance as output, though labeled "cost". See bottom of 7.3.2 – Erik May 10 at 14:30
