Brimming with intelligent, practical and interesting features, The Lady magazine covers travel, cookery, health and gardening. Now edited by Maxine Frith, The Lady was first launched in 1885 and is published 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.
