I'll be making the pilgrimage to Nottingham sometime over the Christmas week for a day and I understand there's a lot of the miniature industry based there. Besides the mandatory Warhammer World visit, I'm looking for other suggestions on what to see/visit. I'm a fan of many game systems and Scifi, fantasy, and historical minis, so I'm open to anything. I plan on stopping by Mantic and Warlord games as well, but are there any other gems I need to see? What about non-miniature related locations, anything a must see?

Might not be the sort of advice you're after, but I've found that it's pretty much got an adjacent tram stop, so it's great to use one of the park and rides and avoid all the hassle. Can then get the tram to Beeston
where you'll find Chimera, a board game and hobby shop (non-GW): https://www.chimeraccg.co.uk/
Edit: just found out Chimera closed in October.
Sneinton Market's supposed to be good but I've never been. Lot of creative places there.
If you're a thrill seeker there's a really old dodgy arcace called the West End which has an escalator that cut some poor sod's toe off. But last I went there was a cool collectables shop there (might be gone by now).

It’s Nottingham per se, nor is it strictly game related, but I got a far bigger kick than I thought I would out of the couple of hours I spent in Sherwood Forest in the summer to break up a long drive for my dogs. I wasn’t a *massive* Robin Hood nerd as a kid, and appreciate that none of it is fully real, but i was taken aback by the massive grin that was on my face seeing the Major Oak et al, though YMMV. December is probably a different proposition to August too...

Also, Annie's Burger Shack is a must it's in Nottingham centre and its amazing.
This, so very much this.

The Iron Hands, they are the real emo marines. Seriously. The Dark Angels aren't the ones who sit around cutting off bits of themselves, wearing black, and complaining about weakness and ennui...

Other things to do in Notts: Ye Olde Trip - very cool old pub; Ludorati - board game cafe place which sounds like you’d like; very cool new VR zombies place which is a lot of fun; Christmas markets are fairly decent; there are a number of good escape rooms in the city centre; restaurant six at Trent bridge has an awesome whiskey bar with a great view and very cool setting; and if you like curry then every curry house on Maid Marian way is brilliant (with Memsaab probably being the best).
