Archive Newspapers

As the UK’s largest newspaper archive, we have over 3 million genuine newspapers spanning over four centuries.

Newspapers provide an unparalleled glimpse into the past. Those fascinated by the past can relive history as it was first reported on as each newspaper is an original, with no embellishments or alterations. This preserves the history of the paper you’re reading, taking you back to the exact event or moment and seeing how the media and public reacted at the time.

Whether you’re looking for an original issue from the last 100 years, or a Victorian Newspaper from the 19th century, our archives date back to 1900, reporting on many of the last century’s greatest moments as they happened.

This rich archive of newspapers is actively used by multiple platforms. Offering regional and national titles, our archives are extensive and unmatched. We supply newspapers to researchers, media programme developers, historians, and educational establishments. Newspapers are acknowledgements of the past, representing society and how far the world has advanced since. However, by far the greatest demand we have is for archive newspaper gifts, suitable for all manner of occasions, most commonly birthdays, anniversaries and life-milestones.

Buy Archive Newspapers at Great Prices

Archive newspapers make particularly spectacular keepsakes for those with a great interest in the past. The recipient tends to find an invaluable resonance relating to a certain date or headline, triggering nostalgic moments from their own lives. A single newspaper can give the individual a direct connection with their past, be it the news, latest fashion, gossip, sporting events or prices of everyday items. Due to the size of our newspaper archive, we can supply an archive newspaper from nearly any date. Simply enter your special date of interest at the top of this page and you will see the full range of newspaper titles available.

Historic Newspapers has a full-time archivist who can conduct research on our newspaper archive. We do a lot of work for media companies relating to programme development, as well as commissioned research by various institutions on specific themes. We are also asked to do research for members of the public who are looking for a past newspaper article – often an article in which either they or one of their relatives featured. So long as we are given a clear brief as to where to look, we can find the article being sought after.

Excellent birthday present, something different and memorable

Customer E Wragg Trustpilot product review 2 star rating May 28 2020

product was 50 yrs old so expected it to be ancient looking but wasn't ready for the aroma, in fact it stunk. Had to air each page before I dare put it back in the box, so glad I didn't send direct to recipients.

    Thank you for your review.

    We are so sorry to hear this.

    Due to the age of the paper it does mean that these can have a slight musky smell due to archiving, storage process and ageing. Unfortunately this is something that is out of our control.

    Once again, please do accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused.

    If you require any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us on 03300669700 or email us at info@historic-newspapers.co.uk

Got a newspaper and Brandy for my brother in law for his 50th. He loved it, he was well surprised and said thats something absolute different.nIt was a very special gift, but quite expensive for a part time working person. In all the other way 100% amazing gift.

The newspaper as such did not have any problem. It just wasn't the one I wanted.

    hank you for your review.

    We are so sorry to hear this.

    We can see that you have been in contact with a Customer Representative who explained that each newspaper print different editions throughout the day. As we have millions of newspapers in the archive and do not know what editions we have for each date and as a personalised gift company, the personalisation is your requested date not the headline. If you are looking for something specific, we would always advise to call our Customer Service Team as research would need to take place.

    Your newspaper has now successfully been returned and a refund has been processed for you.

    Once again, please do accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused.

    If you require any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us on 03300669700 or email us at info@historic-newspapers.co.uk
