Let it be impressed upon your minds, let it be instilled into your children, that the LIBERTY OF THE PRESS is the PALLADIUM of all the Civil, Political and RELIGIOUS RIGHTS of an ENGLISHMAN.
With these words, The Sunday Times launched on 20th October 1822, promising to instill “an invigorating spirit” in its readership, and uphold the freedom of the press against those “emperors, kings, and their ministers” who would stifle it. Since that first issue, the newspaper has consistently provided thoughtful analysis and commentary on the week’s news and society at large. Murder, theater, sport and politics-all collide in its pages in an abundance of colorful detail.
The Sunday Times is the largest-selling British national newspaper in the “quality press” market category. The award-winning Insight team has earned them the reputation as a strong investigative newspaper. It was the first British paper to offer multiple sections and remains one of the largest weighing in with around 475 pages.
