About us

Our mission at Hachette UK is to make it easy for everyone to discover new worlds of ideas, learning, entertainment, and opportunity. 


We are the UK’s second-largest publishing group in the UK, with 12 autonomous publishing divisions and over 60 imprints, each with its own rich and diverse history. We are also the market leader in e-books, publishing a range of bestsellers in audio format – currently the fastest-growing part of our business, and have offices all around the UK, including our headquarters in London, the Hely Hutchinson Centre (HHC) for distribution in Didcot, and five new national offices in Edinburgh, Manchester, Newcastle, Sheffield and Bristol. We also have offices in several other regions, including Australia, India, Ireland, Hong Kong, Singapore, Jamaica, and New Zealand.


We publish thousands of new books across the group every year and our authors include Brit Bennett, Candice Carty-Williams, Martina Cole, Michael Connelly, John Grisham, Stephen King, Stieg Larsson, Nelson Mandela, Stephenie Meyer, Maggie O’Farrell, Delia Owens, Ian Rankin, J.K. Rowling, Colson Whitehead and Malala Yousafzai. Our award-winning adult publishing divisions are Orion, which won Publisher of the Year at the 2021 British Book Awards; Little, Brown; John Murray Press; Hodder & Stoughton; Headline; Quercus; Bookouture; and Octopus. Hachette Children’s Group also publishes a diverse range of books for children of all ages, while Hodder Education is a market leader in resources for both primary and secondary schools.
