Please note I will not be hosting any Public events from 31st January 2023. Nothing too drastic from our side, just need a break.

I’ll be providing updates when we’re back, here and on my social media platforms.

Thank you for all the custom and friendship this has brought me to date.

I look forward to seeing you all again soon, both new and old customers.

My first venture into the original Centre literally took my breath away! Here was the biggest gaming area that I had ever seen covered in great looking terrain boards, all specifically designed for the battles being re-enacted… this was the largest amount of beautifully painted figures I had ever dreamed of let alone seen, all in one place. I spent the next two hours touring the shelves and drooling over the figures.

There is now the opportunity to re-fight all the major battles from these periods as well as all those from our primary period the Napoleonic Wars from 1800 onwards.

Additionally our periods include, WWII, American Civil War and War of the Spanish Succession, Ancients, War of the Roses, Early Renaissance, ECW, Indian Mutiny and the Sudan, again all the major engagements of these periods are covered.

Re-location of the Wargames Holiday Centre seemed an obvious move, we wanted to make the experience far more accessible, with this in mind we looked at the networks for rail, road, sea and air and plumbed for a location suiting these.

Our location is within 5 minutes of junction 6 of the M3 motorway, in the Holiday Inn hotel in Basingstoke and is accessible through rail network out of London from Waterloo. Accommodation is local to the centre and is very reasonably priced.

Our aim is to make your gaming experience with us one of your best and look forward to greeting you here soon. So pick up your sword and steel yourself for the game of your life!

I had an absolutely splendid time: spending a weekend’s Napoleonic wargaming in the Grand Manner in friendly and convivial surroundings with fellow enthusiasts was an absolutely splendid experience.
