Brimming with intelligent, practical and interesting features, The Lady magazine covers news, travel, cookery, health and gardening. Now edited by Sam Taylor, The Lady was first launched in 1885 and is published twice monthly, notorious over the years for its much loved classified advertisement section. Independently run, The Lady was founded by Thomas Gibson Bowles, maternal grandfather of the Mitford sisters, who started The Lady upon his wife’s suggestion that a women’s magazine would prove popular. Since then, The Lady has remained within the same family and is now under the management of publisher, Ben Budworth.
