  • Been meaning to take my gaming-mad son here for a while, finally got a chance this week and traveled up from Brighton. Arrived when they opened at 10 am thinking we'd probably have had enough by lunch...  more »

  • What a great little gem, I lost four hours of my life in this place. Once you pay you get your hand stamped so can come and go. There are so many great consoles young and old to play. We spent loads of time on a game called gang beast's which was so much fun. The staff are really friendly and approachable.
  • If you are at a certain age like myself, these museum peices will take you back to when you used them as part of everyday life. Very nostalgic. The younger ones might find it boring though as it was all a bit simpler 30 years ago but boy was it great. Amiga, Spectrum and BBC Micro are some of the ones there to look at.
  • Pricey, but fascinating museum/cafe/bar. VR facilities are top notch. Kids loved finding out about the history of games.
  • The galleries are full of games for all ages. And they have events in the toast bar. Can easily spend an entire day here.
  • Great day out for the kids and parents too.. Old computers, classic games and VR. Highly recommend an afternoon out. Kids really enjoyed the minecraft LAN games hosted on level 4.

Where to stay in Nottingham

Staying in Nottingham's historical town center not only keeps you close to the area's finest shopping and dining, but also near an increasingly popular bohemian quarter. The town center is packed with top-quality boutique and spa hotels, as well as luxurious self-catering apartments. If you are travelling on a shoestring or just quickly passing through, consider one of Nottingham's low-budget hostels or inns. For a taste of country living, book your stay a working-farm cottage or a family-run countryside B&B.
