About The Spectator

The Spectator* is said to be the oldest weekly magazine in the world, having published its first issue in London in 1828.

It's a collection of articles and columns dedicated to current affairs, politics and culture that includes book and film reviews, style pages, recipes, travel inspiration and well being advice.

The Spectator, whose illustrated covers often draw the eye for their satirical tone, is still published weekly and, although it has a leaning towards the Conservative side of politics, publishes opinion pieces by journalists from across the political spectrum.
