Hit and Miss Guide to London Life

Advantages: Some great information about events in the capital
Disadvantages: It can be tired and tries to be too much to too many people.
Time Out is a magazine for londoners, detailing all of the events and information of things happening over the next week in the Capital.
The magazine mixes film and restaurant reviews with information on dance, music, classical, comedy and gay/lesbian events in London.
I have subscribed to the magazine on a couple of occasions and am currently subscribed, being honest I find the magazine very hit and miss, some weeks it can be brilliant, others its incredibly dull. Perhaps this is an indictment of the social events going on in London on that particular week, but for me the quality of the magazine is often dictated by the cover feature.
If its an interesting article like the top 50 cheap eats in London, its information I find incredibly useful, if its an article on historic streets or something aimed at others, I often find it dull.
The film and restaurant reviews are good although i'd prefer more of these and less of other sections, I enjoy the magazine but do find it doesn't tell me too much thats new nowadays.
The magazine can be good value, you can get an offer of 99p for 13 issues and then you pay direct debit £22.50 per quarter. This isn't bad for a weekly magazine and i'd recommend this, some of the reviews of other cities are interesting too and there is also a television guide to the rear of the magazine.
Overall it is a decent enough magazine but maybe its because I don't visit as much as I used to socially, but its a bit tired.
