List of newspapers in the United Kingdom

Twelve daily newspapers and eleven only-Sunday ones are distributed in the United Kingdom. Others circulate in Scotland only and still others serve smaller areas. National daily newspapers publish every day except Sundays and 25 December. Sunday newspapers may be independent; e.g. The Observer was an independent Sunday newspaper from its founding in 1791 until it was acquired by The Guardian in 1993. Many daily newspapers now have Sunday editions, usually with a related name (e.g. The Times and Sunday Times), but are editorially distinct.

UK newspapers can generally be split into two distinct categories: the more serious and intellectual newspapers, usually referred to as the broadsheets due to their large size, and sometimes known collectively as 'the quality press', and others, generally known as tabloids, and collectively as 'the popular press', which have tended to focus more on celebrity coverage and human interest stories rather than political reporting or overseas news. The tabloids in turn have been divided into the more sensationalist mass market titles, or 'red tops', such as The Sun and the Daily Mirror, and the middle-market papers, the Daily Express and the Daily Mail.

The Independent and The Times have changed in recent years to a compact format, not much bigger than that used by the tabloids. The Guardian moved in September 2005 to what is described as a 'Berliner' format, slightly larger than a compact. Its Sunday stablemate The Observer followed suit. Both The Guardian and The Observer now use the tabloid format, having done so since January 2018.[1] Despite these format changes, these newspapers are all still considered 'broadsheets'.

Other Sunday broadsheets, including The Sunday Times, which tend to have a large amount of supplementary sections, have kept their larger-sized format. The national Sunday titles usually have a different layout and style from their weekly sister papers, and are produced by separate journalistic and editorial staff.

All the major UK newspapers currently have websites, some of which provide free access. The Times and The Sunday Times have a paywall requiring payment on a per-day or per-month basis by non-subscribers. The Financial Times business daily also has limited access for non-subscribers. The Independent became available online only upon its last printed edition on 26 March 2016.[2] However unlike the previously mentioned newspapers it does not require any payment to access its news content. Instead the newspaper offers extras for those wishing to sign up to a payment subscription, such as crosswords, Sudoku puzzles, weekend supplements and the ability to automatically download each daily edition to read offline.

Most towns and cities in the UK have at least one local newspaper, such as the Evening Post in Bristol and The Echo in Cardiff. They are not known nationally for their journalism in the way that (despite much syndication) some city-based newspapers in the USA are (e.g. The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe). An exception to this was the Manchester Guardian, which dropped the 'Manchester' from its name in 1959 and relocated its main operations to London in 1964. The Guardian Media Group produced a Mancunian paper, the Manchester Evening News, until 2010 when along with its other local newspapers in the Greater Manchester area it was sold to Trinity Mirror.

Papurau Bro

Papurau Bro ('Area Papers') are Welsh language newspapers produced nominally monthly (typically 10 issues a year with a summer break) which cover the news in a small area - a town, group of parishes, one or a few valleys, etc. - with a circulation of perhaps a few thousand each. There are between 50 and 60 Papurau Bro which cover the whole of Wales, plus the Welsh communities of Liverpool and London. Papers are frequently named after local features, connections, crafts, etc., or in dialect (clebran, clecs, clochdar, and clonc; all imply 'gossip'). The first papur bro (Y Dinesydd) appeared in 1973 in Cardiff, and the following decade saw the establishment of most of the others. Much of the work of producing the papers is done voluntarily (aside from the printing), although financial support is given by Bwrdd yr Iaith (Welsh Language Board). Some of the papers listed may have ceased publication.

Its headquarters are in Chesterfield and much of its coverage centres on the town and the surrounding area. The newspaper also covers parts of the Peak District and Amber Valley areas. The Derbyshire Times is the biggest selling weekly newspaper in the county and in Britain’s top ten for circulation. Published in five editions - Chesterfield/Clay Cross, East, North East, Alfreton area, and Matlock/Peak – is read by over 108,000 readers every week.The Derbyshire Times (and Chesterfield Herald) was first published on Saturday, January 7, 1854. Historical copies of the Derbyshire Times and Chesterfield Herald, dating back to 1854, are available to search and view in digitised form at The British Newspaper Archive.It made history in 1893 when it became the first weekly newspaper in England to introduce the linotype setting machine. Later owned by the Edmunds family, the DT bought the Derbyshire Courier in 1922 and amalgamated two old rivals to become one paper. In 1978 the paper's publisher Wilfred Edmunds Ltd became the first English acquisition of Falkirk-based publishers F. Johnston & Co, which later became Johnston Press.

The paper switched from a broadsheet format to tabloid in March 1986 and entered the world of multimedia publishing in 1999 with the launch of its website.

The paper has a staff of 4 reporters and 4 photographers, which is supported by a team of voluntary correspondents. The newspaper contains several supplements focusing on property, motoring, business and entertainment in the area. Once possessing their own printing facility at their Chesterfield premises, the Derbyshire Times has been printed at Johnston Press's Sheffield Web facility in Dinnington since 2007.

Endorsements in the 2010 United Kingdom general election

During the 2010 United Kingdom general election, a number of newspapers made endorsements of a political party. Here is an incomplete list.

A number of newspapers changed their endorsements from the previous general election, in 2005. The most notable changes were those of The Sun, The Times, the Sunday Times and the News of the World (all owned by News International), to the Conservative Party, having all backed Labour since 1997.

The Financial Times, the Evening Standard, The Economist also switched their endorsement from Labour to the Conservatives. The Liberal Democrats picked up the endorsement of The Guardian and The Observer.

Financial Times

The Financial Times has more than 942,000 "paid-for" users (as of November 2018) and over 740,000 digital subscribers.

List of magazines in the United Kingdom

The following is an incomplete list of current and defunct magazines published in the United Kingdom.

List of newspapers by circulation

This is a list of paid daily newspapers in the world by average circulation. Worldwide newspaper circulation figures are compiled by the International Federation of Audit Bureaux of Circulations and World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers. This list shows the latest figures that are publicly available through either organisation.

Some figures are disputed; the numbers for Japanese newspapers have been subjected to claims of "oshigami" (exaggeration by over-supplying papers to businesses). Free newspapers are not included in the list.

List of newspapers in London

This list of newspapers in London is divided into papers sold throughout the region and local publications. It is further divided into paid for and free titles. The newspaper industry in England is dominated by national newspapers, all of which are edited in London, although The Guardian began as the Manchester Guardian. For a list of the national newspapers available in London see List of newspapers in the United Kingdom.

List of newspapers in the United Kingdom by circulation

At the start of the 19th century, the highest-circulation newspaper in the United Kingdom was the Morning Post, which sold around 4,000 copies per day, twice the sales of its nearest rival. As production methods improved, print runs increased and newspapers were sold at lower prices. By 1828, the Morning Herald was selling the most copies, but it was soon overtaken by The Times.Pubs would typically take in one or two papers for their customers to read, and through this method, by the 1850s the newspaper of the licensed trade, the Morning Advertiser, had the second highest circulation. Sales of The Times were around 40,000, and it had around 80% of the entire daily newspaper market, but Sunday papers were more popular, some boasting sales of more than 100,000. Later in the century, the Daily News came to prominence, selling 150,000 copies a day in the 1870s, while by 1890, The Daily Telegraph had a circulation of 300,000. Sunday newspaper sales also grew rapidly, with Lloyd's Weekly Newspaper being the first to sell one million copies an issue.The press was changed by the introduction of halfpenny papers. The first national halfpenny paper was the Daily Mail (followed by the Daily Express and the Daily Mirror), which became the first weekday paper to sell one million copies around 1911. Circulation continued to increase, reaching a peak in the mid-1950s; sales of the News of the World reached a peak of more than eight million in 1950. Since the 1950s, there has been a gradual decline in newspaper sales. The availability of multimedia news platforms has accelerated this decline in the 21st century, and by the close of 2014, no UK daily or Sunday newspaper had a circulation exceeding two million.
