We have been doing some new year tidying at The Spectator, and the result is a refreshed look to our website. We've added a trending bar on the home page and if you cast your eye across the navigation bar, you can see we’ve simplified its structure, to make it more welcoming for those who don’t know their way around.

In the new Magazine section, you can find all the articles in that week’s issue in one place. Subscribers have full access to our back issues — recent ones can be chosen by from a drop-down box on the right hand side. We’ve grouped all of your favourite columnists — from the front and back of the magazine — together in one place.

And those who receive our weekly Culture House email will be pleased to see we’ve brought all of our Books and Arts coverage online under this banner. Each week, all of the articles from our magazine will be available with plenty of pictures as well as audio and video.

I’m also delighted to welcome some new regular writers to the site. Two inhabitants of Old Queen Street — Camilla Swift and Lara Prendergast — will both be writing regular blogs. You’ll be able to find the rest of us on Coffee House as usual. A regular name from our books pages, Molly Guinness, is also joining as our in-house archivist. She’ll be digging up the best and most relevant pieces from our 180 year old archive every week.

Like all things digital, we’re at your service - please do get in touch with any suggestions.
