Who we are
Since the magazine’s launch in 1994, Round & About Publications Ltd has been the market leader in community publications. We reach thousands of potential customers who live and shop on your doorstep.
Each month we deliver 24 localised editions, reaching over 504,000 homes across the South East. All of which are delivered by the Royal Mail, ensuring we can get your message in front of your potential customers.
What we offer
Round & About Magazine gets to the heart of the community. Packed with local information, events and articles of interest, we’ve created a formula that connects us with our readers and have become a major medium for companies looking to reach out to potential new customers living in this sought after part of the country.
Direct mailing and guaranteed distribution. Our bound-in inserts ensure your leaflet is received through a well-known and trusted publication. Each magazine carries a maximum of two inserts a month and our pricing structure means you can reach every home, just one postcode or as little as 5,000 homes.
These offer companies the opportunity to have a small, designed boxed advertisement within the classified pages. It can include images, colours, logo’s and text and be placed under your relevant business category. There are a number of size options to suit all budgets starting from as little as £27+vat.
Lineage adverts are the most cost effective form of advertising, whilst still enabling you to reach all our loyal readers. The cost is based on a per word basis, with 14 words included in the base price, and 50p for every word thereafter. Book online by choosing your area(s), add your text, click the months to advertise and pay online.

Our website mirrors our 24 area editions and readers can visit their relevant community page for local content. You’ll find articles from our magazines as well as online only content and our popular competitions. We have advertising spaces for both local and widespread audiences, with the option of including video.
Sponsored content is just one type of native advertising. This is a specific piece of content, located on our site, that is sponsored by a single advertiser. This type of content is most engaging when you sponsor an article which targets your core audience and discusses topics that align with your brand.
Sponsor our email newsletter and reach our loyal subscribers. They receive our monthly newsletter in the same week the magazine is delivered and is a teaser of what to look out for that month. Our database has been developed since the advent of the new GDPR laws and as such is a verified, genuine, subscriber list.
We offer a customer publishing solution to businesses looking to engage directly with their customers, to strengthen brand loyalty and engagement and ultimately drive sales. We can create a product to match your audiences lifestyle and aspirations and with the right measures in place, it can grow your business.

What our customers say
Specsavers have been using Round & About for many years for different stores and across different editions. We can track the redemptions we have on vouchers that are on our adverts and overall we have had a very good response. It has proved to be a very worthwhile publication for us to advertise in.
Round & About have helped to not only drive new customers to the restaurant, but had a BIG impact when we decided to re-brand and become Meridionale. They have the ability to not only get a relevant magazine in front of a targeted and affluent audience, but their in-house design team and writers really helped when we launched with the re-brand.
As part of our commitment to supporting our regional estimators throughout the UK we have placed significant amounts of local advertising in addition to a substantial spend on national press advertising. We have gradually increased our annual spend to circa £100,000, and we currently advertise across all of their 24 area editions each month.
Our data confirms that especially in 2018, Round & About Magazine has consistently out-performed most of the national press on a pound for pound spend – This includes – but is not limited to: The Telegraph, Evening Standard, The Times, The Metro, The Express, The Sun, The Daily Mirror, Gardeners Word, The Radio Times, Saga Magazine and has even brought us a much better return on investment than our recent Sky Adsmart TV campaign.
Since advertising with The Round & About Magazine, my business has doubled in just one year. I have customers ring me who still keep old copies of the magazine for future Reference. A bit like the old Telephone book. The sales staff are really helpful like yourself, and the ads look great in colour. Thank you very much, I will continue using Round & about every year from now on.
