IPC Inspire

IPC Inspire is IPC's men's division. Its portfolio of 38 brands covers a huge spectrum of interests and includes famous names from Country Life and The Field to Nuts and NME.


In the Country sector, Country Life remains 'the most quintessentially English of magazines', and it is undoubtedly one of the biggest and most instantly recognisable UK magazine brands, covering a variety of subjects from property and the arts to gardening and architecture. And with over 150 years of publishing history behind it, The Field is dedicated to the support and promotion of our countryside heritage and to celebrating the great British country sports tradition.


IPC Inspire also has a market-leading portfolio of shooting titles, comprising Shooting Times, Shooting Gazette and Sporting Gun, complemented by the UK's biggest and best shooting portal www.shootinguk.co.uk. Through this unmatched range of brands, IPC reaches dedicated ‘shots' from every sporting discipline; from rough shooting through wild-fowling to driven grouse and pheasant. The magazines deliver expert content for every shooting man...and woman. Clay shooting is not forgotten, with tips and advice available on a regular basis in Sporting Gun and Shooting Times.
