About Us

Welcome to City Matters – the brand new hyperlocal newspaper for the City of London!

We are a free news and events publication proudly incorporating the longstanding City of London & Docklands Times; a news title that has imperiously served the area for more than quarter of a century. Our ethos is simple; to provide the great City of London with the community voice that it deserves. Featuring everything from breaking news and current affairs to entertainment ‘must sees’, shopping ‘must haves’ and tips and tricks for a peaceful mind body and soul, City Matters’ pages and digital platforms are packed with something for each of the thousands of people who call the City of London home, and the tens of thousands who commute to the heart of the Capital each and every day.  You’ll be able to pick up your copy every Thursday at one of the below distribution points across the City of London:

But our work doesn’t end when the deadline drops. As a registered Social Enterprise, City Matters strives to provide training and employment opportunities to Armed Forces Veterans, as well as students and City of London residents who have special educational requirements. We warmly welcome new partners who share this mission and look forward to establishing collaborations that can help institutions across the City to achieve their social obligations.
