About Guinness World Records
What’s the fastest game bird in Europe? This was the question that inspired the founding of Guinness World Records back in 1955. Starting with a single book published from a room above a gym, the iconic Guinness World Records annuals have sold over 150 million copies in over 40 languages in more than 100 countries.
Today, GWR has grown to become a global multi-media brand, with offices in London, New York, Beijing, Tokyo and Dubai. We deliver world-class content, not just through books, but via TV shows, digital content and live events.
Whatever the medium, our ultimate purpose is to make the world a more interesting, fun and positive place.
