The Times is a British daily (Monday-Saturday) national newspaper that is based in London, England. The Times was founded in 1785 as The Daily Universal Register and became The Times in January 1788. The Times’ sister newspaper, The Sunday Times, was founded in 1821 and runs its own separate editorial staff. The papers have only had common ownership over them since 1967. Both papers have been published by Times Newspapers, a subsidiary of News UK, since 1981.
The Times was published originally as a broadsheet newspaper for 219 years until 2004 when it was switched to a compact size to spread its appeal to a wider audience, including younger readers and people using public transport.
The Times has a daily circulation of 446,164 since December 2016 and has a centre-right political alignment. The typing font Times Roman was originally developed by Stanley Morison of The Times in collaboration with the Monotype Corporation, as it was extremely legible through low-tech printing.

The Times newspaper can be accessed both in physical, compact form and also online on The Times website. However, while all of the content found within the physical copies can also be found online, along with more, there is a subscription fee to access the information. Users are asked to create an account on The Times website, with multiple types of subscription available relevant to how you will use the site.
The newspaper offers a wide variation of news, although it has been found to stick specifically to serious topics and not the kind of news that would be found within tabloid papers. Within their British news, they write about topics such as politics, international relationships, health and technology, among many other sources. Their political stance can be found to lean to the right, with a lot of their political headlines found to be written around Conservative changes. The headlines found within the main British news articles show an intense focus on the shaping of Britain through both international influences and changes within the country itself.
Their Comment sections allow The Times writers to publish opinion pieces on relevant subjects and includes political cartoons based on recent events.
The Times world news section focuses on international politics, including relationships in the US, Russia and the EU, and also monitors situations within war-torn countries. This section provides information surrounding the running of the world outside the UK and helps British readers stay up to date with international news. The Business section writes mostly about UK businesses and their changes, but also includes stories on international business ventures.
The Times sports section writes specifically about British football and rugby teams, as well as reporting on any other national and international sports events that may be running at the time. The Register section allows people to publish obituaries, and marriages for the public to see, both for people with notoriety and anyone else who feels like writing in.
There is a Times 2 section, which follows more trend and personal experience pieces, which appeals usually to younger and female audiences, helping The Times expand their audience.
The Times also provides Scottish and Irish news separate from British and World news pieces, which allows the countries in the UK to all have their own relevant news articles, as the outlets include political and regional news stories from Scottish and Irish Times writers.
