The London publishing world marks the end of an era with the release of the very last print edition of Time Out magazine.
Launched 54 years ago from an office on Kings Road in Chelsea, the magazine has been the go-to publication for listings, movie and restaurant reviews and everything any self-respecting Londoner needs to know about their capital. It evolved into a slimmed-down version in 2012 and became free to readers.
It was renamed “Time” for a while in 2020, reflecting the inability to socialize or go to work due to the lockdown.
On the occasion of the last edition, four artists made custom covers. In this latest issue, Global Editor-in-Chief Caroline McGinn wrote: “It has been a privilege and pleasure serving you in print for 54 years. Long may our love affair continue.”
“Thanks to the knowledgeable, hilarious misfits who created this magazine, there’s no better team in the business.
“Thank you Londoners for dating us for half a century.”
The title is now presented in digital format only.
