What is The Week?

The Week is a print magazine, available by subscription and at newsagents, and a website.

Both are designed for readers who want to know what's going on in the world, but don’t have the time read a daily newspaper from cover to cover - let alone all of them.

In Britain alone, the papers amount to a staggering 5,800 pages a week – almost ten million words.

On top of that, there’s a plethora of TV and radio bulletins to keep up with, and news websites too.

So, keeping up to date with what's happening, and understanding all the issues, from all angles, has never been more taxing.

Which is where The Week comes in...

The Week magazine

The Week takes the very best of the British and international news and comment, and distils it into just 35 succinct editorial pages, to help you keep abreast of events and form your own opinion of the latest issues.

With the key stories delivered in bite-size chunks, you'll get the whole picture quickly and easily. With an ever-increasing readership, The Week has proved itself compulsive reading.
