From this afternoon, look out for the brand new edition of Gasholder, which hits a hundred shops, libraries, pubs, galleries and cafes. And it’ll cost you absolutely nada.

New March issue: out now
New March issue: out now
Issue 4 – our first ever standalone, having previously been coupled with sister title Kentishtowner – is all about the water: from taking a boozy evening voyage along the canal to renting a barge and, of course, living on one full time, we meet four very different cruisers – and find out whether life on the urban waterway is as idyllic as it seems.

If that doesn’t float your proverbial, then get stuck straight into the food section: there are reviews, tips and news of essential hangouts in both Clerkenwell and King’s Cross.

We also put the spotlight on an innovative new club night about to land at the Big Chill House, find out whether the Railway Children is worth the ticket, and step back in time (well, the ’90s) with the story of the buxom mermaid.


Don’t quite understand the name? Simple: it symbolises both the area’s industrious past (there were once 23 of the magnificent Victorian structures) and its future, now that the iconic Gasholder No.8 is back in place. Even better, it’s all set to be a forthcoming arts venue and park.

Gasholder is now available FREE at key pubs, bars, shops and cafes in eight London postcodes: N1, WC1, N7, EC1, N1C, NW1, W1 and NW5. We’ve also extended our distribution now to Clerkenwell, the West End and Haggerston. If you want to know where you’ll definitely find one, head to the Visitors Centre in KX (see below).
