UK national daily newspapers

Traditionally newspapers could be split into serious-minded newspapers, usually referred to as broadsheets due to their large size, and sometimes collectively as the quality press, and less serious newspapers, known for their small size as tabloids, and collectively as the popular press. However, due to considerations of convenience of reading, for example in cafés and on trains, The Independent and The Times both switched to a compact format, not much bigger than that used by tabloids. The Guardian switched in September 2005 to what it describes as a Berliner format, slightly larger than a compact. Its stablemate The Observer has since followed suit. Other Sunday broadsheets have tended to keep their larger size, as the amount of content and number of sections they provide would, in tabloid form, be too thick, heavy and cumbersome. All major UK newspapers now have a free online version, though the four Murdoch titles plan to introduce charges for content.

As well as individual newspapers there are newspapers which collect news from each of the major newspapers and combine it into one. In the UK there is the The Weekend City Press Review (WCPR) which summarizes business and financial news from 13 papers and distributes the paper electronically on a subscription basis.

Local newspapers

Most towns and cities in the UK have at least one local newspaper, such as the Evening Post in Bristol and The Echo in Cardiff. However, they are not known nationally for their journalism in the way that (despite much syndication) city-based newspapers in the USA are (e.g. The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe). A major exception to this pattern was the well-regarded Manchester Guardian, which dropped the 'Manchester' from its name (1959) and relocated its main operations to London (1964). The group continues to produce a Mancunian paper, the Manchester Evening News.

Papurau Bro

Papurau Bro (Area Papers) are Welsh language newspapers produced nominally monthly (typically 10 issues a year with a summer break) which cover the news in a small area—a town, group of parishes, one or a few valleys, etc., with a circulation of perhaps a few thousand each. There are between 50 and 60 Papurau Bro which cover the whole of Wales, plus the Welsh communities of Liverpool and London. Papers are frequently named after local features, connections, crafts, etc, or in dialect (clebran, clecs, clochdar, and clonc all imply gossip). The first "papur bro" (Y Dinesydd) appeared in 1973 in Cardiff, and the following decade saw the establishment of most of the others. Much of the work of producing the papers is done voluntarily (aside from the printing), although financial support is given by Bwrdd yr Iaith (Welsh Language Board). Some of the papers listed may have ceased publication.
