Games Workshop Group PLC is a British miniature wargaming manufacturing company. Games Workshop is best known as developer and publisher of the tabletop wargames Warhammer, Warhammer 40,000 and The Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game. The company is listed on the London Stock Exchange with the symbol GAW.L. The company's British operating subsidiary company is Games Workshop Limited.Overview and historyFounded in 1975 at 15 Bolingbroke Road, London by John Peake, Ian Livingstone, and Steve Jackson (not to be confused with U.S. game designer Steve Jackson), Games Workshop was originally a manufacturer of wooden boards for games such as backgammon, mancala, Nine Men's Morris, and Go. It later became an importer of the U.S. role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons and then a publisher of wargames and role-playing games in its own right, expanding from a bedroom mail-order company in the process.In order to promote their business and postal games, create a games club, and provide an alternative source for games news, the newsletter Owl and Weasel was founded in February 1975. This was superseded in June 1977 by White Dwarf.

The town center is packed with top-quality boutique and spa hotels, as well as luxurious self-catering apartments. If you are travelling on a shoestring or just quickly passing through, consider one of Nottingham's low-budget hostels or inns. For a taste of country living, book your stay a working-farm cottage or a family-run countryside B&B.

  • Just for a bit of info: Entering Warhammer World in every regard is free (apart from during certain events, so best to check), visiting the museum is £7.50 per adult. I've been to Warhammer World twic...  more »
  • OK, so this was our second visit to Warhammer World. Our son has caught the Warhammer bug, so this has become an annual must visit attraction. We booked a table and it was nice to be able to play Age ...  more »
  • Took my son here for his 12 birthday. He's a huge warhammer 40k fan and loves building the models. I'd never heard about this place until my son watched a you tube video so we decided to go. I'm so gl...  more »

  • Another codex full of needless spelling errors. I ring to offer them my services as a professional proof reader, because of my concerns for the quality of the product. They dont want to ring you back or record your number. Just pathetic.
  • This place is amazing. friendly staff, huge playing area with the highest quality tables I have ever seen, shop with worldwide exclusives. Everything warhammer fan need in one place. As for "Warhammer World" I got only one word to say - majestic. Dioramas that were presented were amazing, with the main one containing over 6000 figures. It was so big that it was almost impossible to get a picture of it! It was definitely one of the kind experience and I would recommend to visit this museum even for non wargamers as ticket price is cheap (~£7.50 for adult ticket).
  • Has anything you may need for your Warhammer hobby: paints, brushes, a variety of models! Go there also for help and advice on painting and game tactics.
  • Always so awesome. Great staff. My kids say it is better than disneyland
  • Always a pleasure to go to the staff are so helpful and always willing to help or just chat with. Love the theme thought-out always something for your eyes to feast on
