Why was Britain referred to as the workshop of the world?

Because in the 1800's, that's exactly what it was. Britain was the world's first industrialised nation and the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. Raw materials were imported from Britain's colonies and manufactured goods were sold back to them. Britain also had huge reserves of coal and iron ore - most of which are now depleted.
