Hello. Welcome to Tortoise.

The New European has kindly agreed to pay for your first year of membership. We’re excited to have you.

What’s different about us is slow news

We publish new stories each day, and on Saturday you’ll find one rich collection to read, watch and listen to that will keep you going all weekend.

A taste of what you can expect from our digital ThinkIns

As a member, you can come to as many of these as you like


Become a member and get all this for a year

In person

10 tickets to ThinkIns, the engine of open journalism. Tortoise members participate in open news conferences, live and unscripted in our newsroom.

On mobile

The news not as it happens, but when it’s ready. The slow news feed lands in the app, online or in your inbox.


Tortoise quarterly is a short book of long reads. Modern fables, true tales, old stories re-examined, new ones revealed.
