All about the United Kingdom’s national, regional and local press

South London Press

The South London Press is one of those comparatively rare beasts in the UK press: a twice-weekly newspaper. Published in tabloid format, it covers all the SE and SW postcode areas of London, including the Boroughs of Lambeth, Southwark, Greenwich, Lewisham and Wandsworth. Its offices are in Streatham.

It was founded in 1865. It split into a midweek and a weekend edition in 1955.

Formerly part of the Trinity Mirror empire, it was sold to Tindle Newspapers in the summer of 2007, along with several other titles published in South East England.

In June 2012 it was relaunched with seven additional hyperlocal editions:

  • Brixton & South London Press
  • Deptford & New Cross & South London Press
  • Dulwich & South London Press
  • Forest Hill & Sydenham & South London Press
  • Streatham & South London Press
  • Wandsworth & South London Press
  • Wimbledon & South London Press

It moved offices in March 2013 from its long-standing offices in Leigham Court Road in Streatham Hill, to a former Oxfam shop just around the corner on Streatham High Road.

It’s published on Tuesdays and Fridays. A paid-for e-edition’s also available online.
