Old Newspapers Online: About Historic Newspapers

Historic Newspapers is the world’s largest private archive in ownership of over four million old newspapers. It is an unparalleled collection, growing every day, created primarily from UK newspapers. We house both national and regional titles, including Sunday papers free of any extra charges that usually apply to Sunday editions. Spanning the last four centuries, anyone can buy old newspapers and gift them to those fascinated by history.

This extensive collection has been assembled due to our network of national and local libraries, government departments, and universities that in years gone by, used to hold a newspaper from every day. As a result, our newspaper archives offer an unrivalled insight into the past, giving individuals the resources to find old newspapers from the 1900s onwards.

The popularity of giving and receiving original newspapers continues to rise as their rarity grows. This in turn further increases both the monetary and sentimental value for the owners. As only genuine originals are held in the archive, once an original newspaper title for a certain date has been sold, it’s unlikely to be replaced. This makes milestone birthday dates immensely popular, as a newspaper from a person’s birth date provides a fantastic trip down memory lane. (We also have many copies of discontinued newspapers, which make extra special gifts since new copies will never be printed again.)

Birthday newspapers or papers from important dates in an individual’s life are eye-opening. We offer a range of carefully selected gifts for all manner of occasions. Special birthday newspaper books and personalised football books are amongst our bestsellers, whilst our day you were born gifts are unique treasures to take anyone on a nostalgic trip back to the past.
