19th century British Library newspapers

Search a comprehensive range of British newspapers from the Victorian era digitised from the British Library's extensive collection - each article gives a picture of life in the nineteenth century. You can search 48 newspapers and 2.2 million pages - you will see the original printed page. See examples of early photography. Use Gale Newsvault to search this and the Times at the same time. You may wish to read the factsheet before using it.

British Newspaper Archive

The British Newspaper Archive is a project to digitise up to 40 million pages from the British Library's vast collection of local newspapers over the next 10 years. It is only accessible from within the library.

Search millions of articles by keyword, name, location, date or title and watch your results appear in an instant.

To begin, just register with the site with your email address and password - once you have logged in, then you can carry out unlimited searches (but our current licence only allows one user at a time).

The first stage includes titles published before 1900 and will include titles from cities such as Birmingham, Derby, Manchester, Nottingham, Norwich, Leeds and York, along with local titles from London boroughs.
