Weekendr is the eighth title published by London Belongs To Me, an award-winning boutique publishing house based in the heart of Camden Town, whose primary focus is on the interesting, less heralded bits of the capital that are sometimes forgotten in the stampede towards Soho or Shoreditch.

Our first title to explore life outside London, Weekendr’s proviso is that the destinations are easily accessible and practical for a 48-hour jaunt – so we focus on both the UK, Europe (and occasionally, of course, beyond).

Our north London flagship title Kentishtowner was founded in 2010 by broadsheet travel and lifestyle writer Stephen Emms, whose work has appeared regularly in the weekend sections of The Guardian, Sunday Times, Observer and Independent. It won funding from Nesta in 2012 and started a monthly print edition in 2013.

Since then, our small team have also launched Below The River, which covers south London, and the print and online Gasholder, dedicated to all things Central London (with special focus on King’s Cross, Islington and Bloomsbury).

The latest two additions are Tottenham’s Seventhsister and Leytonstoner, covering a vibrant swathe of east London. In 2017 we launched Eustontowner, a celebration of an overlooked central neighbourhood, with West End title the St James’s Correspondent following in the autumn.

Together our titles attract around 250,000 readers (including 50k in print), with well over 125,000 on social media too. Don’t forget to follow @londonbelongs_ for the highlights of all of ’em.

Like most travel publications, increasingly tight resources means we accept hosted visits to hotels, restaurants and cities; however it goes without saying that we hope to be as thorough in our travel writing as possible, and will spend as much time as we can hunting down the best tips and most hidden corners that make a trip away special. If you’re a travel PR, please get in touch with any ideas or pitches: stephen@londonbelongstome.com

If you wish to add a comment, please do so with respect and politeness. We reserve the right to delete all comments that are non-constructive, offensive, off-topic or don’t comply with basic etiquette.
