Welcome to the website of the Rayleigh Review, a community magazine for the people of Rayleigh in Essex. The Rayleigh Review gives a voice to more than 30,000 people and features stories about the lives of those who live and work in the town. Rayleigh is a vibrant place, steeped in history, but also looking firmly to the future. The aim of the Rayleigh Review is to bring that community together and reveal some of the stories that make it tick. Each month the magazine will include a wealth of pages covering everything from local events to reports on businesses, articles on the town's history and all the latest news from Rayleigh Town Council. It will also feature our schools, churches and numerous clubs and societies as well as tackling the big stories such as plans for 500 new homes in west Rayleigh, pollution in the town centre and on-going concerns over flooding.

The Rayleigh Review also provides the most effective way for local businesses to advertise in the town.  Unlike so many local magazines the Rayleigh Review is not simply packed with advertising, but full of articles and features people look forward to reading. That means wherever your advert appears in the magazine it will have real impact. With the best local directory of any Rayleigh magazine people are also holding onto their issues for a long time  (some residents are even building a collection!) so your advert is on hand for several weeks, rather than days.  Add to that very competitive rates and the option to have your leaflet delivered with the Rayleigh Review and it's not hard to see why so businesses in the area are making the magazine their first choice. For more details on our specifications and rates go to our 'Advertise with Us' page.
