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 This was superseded in June 1977 by White Dwarf.

  • Absolute must-see if you're a Games Workshop fan, and a definite good day out if you're not one! The exhibitions are some of the best I've visited, and well worth the money, staff are friendly and there is a cool in-house pub to visit afterwards. Highly recommended.
  • Great day out, staff are so friendly and enthusiastic and there is a lot to see and do for hobbyists. I took my 3 year old daughter and she loved it!
  • First time visit with the kids good cafe with food and decent coffee including decaf the kids loved the set ups and models they are only 3 & 1 so probably more suitable for slightly older children but they both absolutely loved it we had a good look round while daddy shopped!
  • GW HQ, great bar, gaming tables, and atmosphere.
  • Amazing place if you like Warhammer. Sculptures in the car park and friendly staff.
