About us

The Spectator was established in 1828, and is the best-written and most influential weekly in the English language. Our writers have no party line; their only allegiance is to clarity of thought, elegance of expression and independence of opinion. Our writers’ opinions range from left to right, their circumstances from high life to low life. None make any pretence at being impartial: our motto is “firm, but unfair”.

We stock a wide range of branded items as well as cartoons featured in the weekly magazine that make ideal gifts for family and friends who are devotees of The Spectator brand.
