A news outlet in Greenwich that sells the South London Press.

The South London Press is a bi-weekly tabloid newspaper based in Streatham, South London, covering local news within the London boroughs of Lambeth, Southwark, Lewisham and Wandsworth. First published in 1865, the newspaper is currently published every Tuesday and Friday, at the retail price of 50p. In the 1980s and 1990s many of its former reporters went on to make careers in Fleet Street and it is still considered a training ground for the nationals. Max Wall and then Richard Woolveridge edited the bi-weekly in its glory days when its circulation was over 130,000. The novelist Martyn Bedford used to work in the Lewisham branch of the paper and the BBC radio host, Brian Alexander, was Sports Editor in the early 1980s.

The South London Press is the winner of the Press Gazette Regional Press Awards Newspaper of the Year for weekly newspapers above 20,000 circulation.[1]

The current sports editor is Toby Porter, and the editor of the South London Press is Hannah Walker.

The SLP incorporates former newspapers, South London News and South London Observer, and the South London Advertiser Group. The newspaper is part of the Tindle Group which bought it from Trinity Mirror in 2007. It has previously sponsored Millwall F.C.
