Loop through Taxonomies and list posts underneath

In my WordPress site, I had a need to list all taxonomies and underneath them, their related custom post types.

To do this, I used this code below. Obviously replace “custom_taxomy” with your taxonomy name and “custom_post_type” with your post type name.

$custom_terms = get_terms('custom_taxonomy');

foreach($custom_terms as $custom_term) {
    $args = array('post_type' => 'custom_post_type',
        'tax_query' => array(
                'taxonomy' => 'custom_taxonomy',
                'field' => 'slug',
                'terms' => $custom_term->slug,

     $loop = new WP_Query($args);
     if($loop->have_posts()) {
        echo '<h2>'.$custom_term->name.'</h2>';

        while($loop->have_posts()) : $loop->the_post();
            echo '<a href="'.get_permalink().'">'.get_the_title().'</a><br>';
