We are all facing extraordinary circumstances and at The London Magazine we think it is important to remain open and transparent at a time when things can feel scary and uncertain.

Sadly, many of our beloved bookshops have had to temporarily close their doors, however, we understand that for many – including ourselves – reading offers comfort, hope and solace. Therefore, with delivery services remaining in place and online retail encouraged by the UK government, we will continue running orders direct via our website so that we can keep connected and enthused during this moment of solitude and isolation.

We are working hard to ensure our team and deliveries are safe and healthy, closely following government guidelines and wearing protective clothing when handling print issues. We only use Royal Mail, whose safety measures and COVID-19 updates can be found here, and we will still be shipping orders internationally until further notice. As we are working with reduced staff in our offices, there may be a slight delay on dispatch though you will be notified once your order is completed and out for delivery.

If tighter measures are put in place and we are unable to deliver physical copies of our issues, we will supply you with a digital version and create a backlog to be fulfilled when services resume as normal. Please be assured that should this apply to your order, you will be contacted directly.

The London Magazine team continue working from home, so if you have any questions or concerns regarding your order get in touch with us via email at subscriptions@thelondonmagazine.org.

Thank you for your support at a time where it matters now more than ever.

Yours faithfully,

The London Magazine Team
