A cost-effective way to advertise to local residents every month

Delivered to homes in Blyth, Shiremoor, Cramlington, Seaton Valley, Newbiggin and North Seaton.

North East Directories give local residents a handy A5 sized guide to a range of local businesses in and around the area in what is still the most trusted advertising platform, a printed magazine.

We target a wide range of homes in the local areas, with our distribution being carefully selected to provide a good mix of estates. We have used our 15 years of local advertising knowledge to map out what we believe are the key estates in these areas.

Our directories are distributed to tens of thousands of local households, by our own in-house distributors. We target desirable estates, home to affluent residents, many of whom have paid their mortgage off, are looking to improve, not move, have good levels of disposable income, shop and socialise locally. We also reach many of the new estates in the local area, giving new homeowners, who may be new to the area, a chance to see a good range of local businesses.

Our mission is to provide affordable, cost-effective, high-quality advertising for local businesses, allowing them to get their message across to tens of thousands of desirable local homes in the area.

The Benefits


We deliver to homes with good levels of disposable income where residents have a proven track record of responding to local magazine advertising.


We are the only local magazine that delivers every single copy ourselves. We know where every copy goes. This means we can guarantee that every single copy will be working hard to get you a response.


We are one of the largest printed magazines in the local area. The directories reach a total of 22,500 households every edition, meaning our magazines are read by over 45,000 local residents every two months.


With adverts starting from as little as £28 +VAT North East Directories are affordable for all businesses and provide the best value for money of any local advertising platform.


Our Directories have a proven long shelf life. They contain a great range of local businesses, meaning they are read and retained by local residents, giving your advert an unrivalled shelf life.


We have many customers who have advertised with us for years and use our whole portfolio of magazines. This shows that our Directories get customers a good response and that they work for local businesses!
