BBC History Magazine is Britain’s biggest selling history title with a highly engaged and loyal audience. It brings history to life with informative, lively and entertaining features written by the world’s leading historians and journalists.

We may be a history magazine, but we’re never stuck in the past. Whether it’s the latest research on major historical topics, or explanations of how history can inform current affairs, we always offer our readers a fresh perspective on what’s gone before. With a remit that encompasses everything that’s ever happened, we rarely struggle to fill the magazine. In fact the hardest part of my job is deciding which fascinating subjects will have to wait for another day.
Reaching a core audience who are mature, highly affluent and educated
