I have simple problem: I am using Nominatim to get the list of pharmacies in London. I always get 50 results, regardless of what I set to limit. Any ideas what I do wrong?

I using such javascript code:

var city = "london";
var object = "pharmacy";
var limit = "10000";
var nomstring = "http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/search?format=json&q=" + object + "+in+" + city + "&limit=" + limit;
$.getJSON(nomstring, function(result,status)

Maximum 50 results is a hardcoded limit in the Nominatim logic for /search. It can't (currently) even be overwritten by a configuration setting on the server.

For a list of POIs considering using the http://overpass-turbo.eu/ tool.
