The very first Games Workshop store is being demolished


In Hammersmith, West London, stands a small unassuming translation services building — the very same building that once housed the original Games Workshop store, opened by John Peake, Ian Livingstone, and Steve Jackson in April 1978.

Sadly, it seems like that building is now set to be demolished to make way for a, well, a block of flats.

Games Workshop haven’t occupied the premises for years, but it’s sad news nonetheless. For what it’s worth, Games Workshop are working on expanding Warhammer World in Nottingham, so I guess you win some and you lose some.
