Time & Leisure is the leading lifestyle media specialising in southwest London and north Surrey. It has been established for 20 years and has built a trusted reputation from both readers and businesses as the go to media for its local and lifestyle content.

The magazines are home-delivered to carefully selected households and reach consumers with high incomes who actively invest in their homes, family and lifestyle. They are very socially active, with a strong interest in the arts, travel and eating out. The arts has always been at the heart of its content with excellent coverage and support of What’s On and cultural events across the region.
There is also a range of digital services, including an active subscriber list of over 12,000 people weekly for newsletters and updates.
The business retains its family ethos, with the aim of being the most trusted local media – inspiring, informing and connecting local communities, whether they are readers, community interest groups or advertisers. The magazine content is selected to be relevant and practical to readers’ local lifestyles, which gives them a real utility value and results in them being retained and referred to on multiple occasions during the month.
Alongside its publications, Time & Leisure actively supports and partners with local events, including everything from its own Food and Drink Awards (now in their 7th year) to the Wimbledon Village Fair (35,000 visitors) and a number of business awards across the region.
In summary, Time & Leisure is all about local, lifestyle and luxury.
