The Gazette is the UK’s official public record, and is comprised of three publications: The London Gazette (published every weekday), The Belfast Gazette (published on Tuesdays) and The Edinburgh Gazette (published on Fridays).
The Gazette is a government publication, managed by The Stationery Office, under the superintendence of The National Archives. As the official public record, information published is verified and certified as fact. Issues are available by subscription or online, and are fully searchable via the website.
The first Gazette issue was in 1665 as The Oxford Gazette, and though the nature of its contents has evolved over time, its standing as the official public record has remained.
