Listings magazine, Time Out, published its final ever print edition today after 54 years.

Time Out provides listings of food, drink and entertainment in London - including the best rooftop bars, or favourite picnic spots.

As well as providing listings, it also gave reviews of theatre productions, cinema screenings and restaurants in the capital.

Time Out, originally titled ‘Where It’s At’, was first launched as a newsletter in 1968 by Tony Elliot - who was then just 21 years old.

In 2012, the magazine cost £3.25 - but later that same year, a slimmed-down version was relaunched, which was free.

In March 2020, it was temporarily rebranded as Time In - in line with isolation rules during the pandemic - and covered more at home entertainment.

Now, 54 years after it was founded in Chelsea, the global editor-in-chief Caroline McGinn shared her thanks in the final issue.

She wrote: “It’s been a privilege and a pleasure to serve you in print for 54 years. Long may our love affair continue.

"Thank you to the expert, hilarious mavericks who made this mag: there’s no better team in the business.

"Thank you Londoners for going out with us for half a century."

Time Out will now focus on their digital content.

To mark the end of their time as a print magazine, four local artists have created front covers which represent the capital as it is right now.
