 The Tatler was originally a literary and society journal founded in 1709. It published news and gossip from the London coffeehouses. This magazine only survived for two years, but the name Tatler was re-used on several occasions.

The Tatler in existence today was founded by Clement Shorter in 1901. At various times during the 20th century, it has been known as The Tatler and Bystander, and London Life. Today, it is known simply as Tatler; it is published monthly and concentrates on society events, fashion and lifestyle.
