To focus in on Liverpool titles only, while searching, use the place filter to select ‘Liverpool, Merseyside, England’. From there, you can use the newspaper filter to look at a list of the Liverpool newspapers we currently hold. However, it’s useful to always remember that news from Liverpool would not only just appear in the city’s own publications. News travelled so it’s well worth doing a broader search on the entire Archive as well as focusing in on local titles only.

Historical Liverpool Newspapers

Each Liverpool newspaper in the Archive has it’s own title page, detailing more information about that publication. The information on each title page includes the number of pages and issues you can search, the years covered by our current holdings and where the paper was published. You can even take a sneak peek inside each paper using our ‘Look inside’ window. Here are some of the highlights from our Liverpool collection. Simply click each image to be taken to the newspaper’s title page.
