Just a month after hitting the 9.5 million page milestone, we’re very pleased to announce that there are now 10 million historic newspaper pages available at The British Newspaper Archive.
The website launched with 4 million pages in November 2011, which means there’s now 150% more to explore. If you’ve not searched the collection for a while, it’s definitely time to try again.
More to search and a great-value subscription
It’s not just our coverage that has improved over the last few years. In 2011, a 30 day package was £29.95, but a 1 month subscription is now just £9.95.
Our subscriptions give you access to the whole collection of historic newspapers and you can keep the pages you view forever by saving them to your computer or printing them out.
Thousands of pages are digitised every week and we’ve added some fantastic content in the last few months. Here are just some of our highlights – please do tell us yours in the comments section below.
Did you know that you can search the Daily Mirror and Sunday Mirror from 1914-1918 at The British Newspaper Archive? The national newspapers provide fascinating daily news, photographs and illustrations from the First World War.

You can now search more than 350,000 pages from 1939-1945 at The British Newspaper Archive. 60 newspaper titles are already online, including the Aberdeen Weekly Journal, Lancashire Evening Post and Kent & Sussex Courier.
