Warhammer World (Nottingham)
Advantages: Themed bar, large gaming hall, same day Mail Order delivery, friendly staff
Disadvantages: outside of town centre
Warhammer World (located in Lenton, Nottingham) is Games Workshop's international Headquarters. The site includes the expected company areas (such as HR) and the manufacturing and dispatch areas, but also includes a number of sections that are open to the general public.
These include a fully licensed dwarven themed bar (known as Bugman's Bar), a miniatures hall containing examples of the various Games Workshop product ranges (including some historical models that they now no longer produce), all painted to a very high standard by the 'Eavy Metal team, which is Games Workshop's team of professional model painters who among other things prepare models for inclusion in Games Workshop's various print publications (including their monthly hobby magazine White Dwarf).
Also at Warhammer World is a large gaming hall full of themed battlefields for customers to use to play games of Warhammer, Warhammer 40,000 and the other Games Workshop games. The gaming hall frequently plays host to a variety of Games Workshop tournaments and events including visits from stores around the country (my own first introduction to Warhammer World was on a trip from the Eastbourne store when around 6-8 years ago, and it was very enjoyable),
Finally, there is also a Games Workshop store, located just off the main gaming hall. In addition to the standard products available in any Games Workshop store, the Warhammer store offers a select range of Forge World products (Forge World is an offshoot company of Games Workshop - also based at Warhammer World - that produces highly detailed resin miniatures to extend the various ranges that Games Workshop produce), and same day Mail Order delivery (provided that you order early enough in the day - currently 1pm for a 3pm delivery I believe).
Bugman's serves a wide range of drinks including their own ale, and a number of fruit smoothies, as well as good quality food. Also available at Bugman's are a variety of board games (some of which are based in the Games Workshop universe), which are free to play, and a variety of Bugman's merchandise including hoodies and pendants.
The staff, both in the store and in the bar are very friendly, and I would recommend a visit if you are into the hobby, or are in Nottingham and thinking about starting the hobby.
Thanks for reading.
Summary: Very enjoyable, well worth a visit
