Newspapers ranked by circulation in the United Kingdom (UK) in 2019

Circulation of newspapers in the United Kingdom (UK) as of April 2019 (in 1,000 copies)

by Katrin Kienast, last edited Jul 22, 2019
Newspapers ranked by circulation in the United Kingdom (UK) in 2019 As of April 2019, the tabloid newspaper The Sun had a circulation of almost 1.4 million newspapers in the United Kingdom (UK). In terms of daily circulation (excluding The Sun and Daily Mail), some newspaper brands saw as many as half a million newspapers circulated across the UK every day. The bane of newspaper delivery people everywhere, the Sunday paper saw circulation rates reach as high as a million copies as of April 2019.
Online viewership

The newspaper industry is having to make major readjustments to a digital future. Physical paper sales have been falling for years with consumers being able to gain access to news on a constant and instant level online. Some brands in the UK now see more than 150 million unique monthly visits online. The mobile is now the leading way individuals consume news in the UK for almost every major brand.

Journalists

Despite the fall in circulation volumes, the number of journalists in the UK has risen between 2011 and 2018. In fact, employment in journalism, newspaper and editor positions in the UK have seen a two-year increase between 2015 and 2017.
