Title serving the city from 1682

Online newspaper with its roots dating back more than 300 years.

London Mercury, the name taken from a newspaper published in the City of London from 1682, and which has taken other forms in the centuries since, was launched online in 2004.

It originates and relays news of London, the UK capital, one of the most cosmopolitan and liveliest cities in the world.

Title: London Mercury


Mission: London Mercury was conceived in 2002 to provide up-to-the minute local news, together with national and international headlines as part of a global network pooling resources to deliver a quality service to member portals. Each online publication has been modelled on a newspaper format for familiar readability by users. The locations forming part of the network were selected on the basis of demand for news for that location. London Mercury, effectively an online newspaper, provides coverage of the city, Greater London, England and the UK. International news, business and finance stories are common across the network of sites, and are drawn from a number of sources including original in-house journalists and wire services.

London Mercury and the other sites are administered by Midwest Radio Network.
