From the 'Pokemon Go' website:

"Get on your feet and step outside to find and catch wild Pokémon. Explore cities and towns around where you live and even around the globe to capture as many Pokémon as you can.

As you move around, your smartphone will vibrate to let you know you’re near a Pokémon. Once you’ve encountered a Pokémon, take aim on your smartphone’s touch screen and throw a Poké Ball to catch it. Be careful when you try to catch it, or it might run away! Also look for PokéStops located at interesting places, such as public art installations, historical markers, and monuments, where you can collect more Poké Balls and other items."

Here is Derby Cathedral Quarter BID's guide to Pokémon hunting in Cathedral Quarter. Whilst you are out and about why not take advantage of shopping in our lovely shops or eating and drinking in our many cafés, restaurants and bars?

You gotta catch em' all!

Queen Street / King Street / Chapel Street
There are several Pokéstops in this area, one of them being the beautiful Grade II listed St Michaels Church which was built in 1857.
If all that hunting has brought on a thirst, you can visit Pokéstops, The Blessington Carriage  & The Flowerpot for a nice refreshing pint.
Other Pokéstops in the area are the Smith & Sons clock and Queens Leisure Centre.

This area sees the stunning Derby Cathedral as a  Pokémon gym! Take a pew and train your monsters in order to win those all important battles.

Pokéstops in the area are The Joseph Wright monument, which commemorates the renowned artist's birthplace, The Iron Gate, Derby Registry Court of Probate, Rotary Club 7 plaque and the Derby County Offices.    

Market Place / Cornmarket
You can battle it out at another gym here in the Market Place, this time at the Great War Memorial. Designed by Charles Clayton Thompson, It features a bronze figure of the Virgin Mary holding the baby Jesus in her arms by the sculptor George Arthur Walker.

One noteable Pokéstop here is the Guildhall Market, which celebrates its 150th anniversary on the 17th September.

Other Pokéstops include The Waterfall and the sculpted faces on the side of it, The distance stone, the PDSA store, the Steve Bloomer monument and Herbert Brown.

Cathedral Green / Full Street / Corporation Street
This area is rife with Pokéstops! The lush greenery of Cathedral Green is a Pokéstop in itself and the Bonnie Prince Charlie statue which commemorates his arrival in the City in 1745 is also somewhere to collect your Poké Balls & Razz Berries.

The Silk Mill is also a Pokéstop along with the high speed train bogie and the mural on the side of the Silk Mill Ale & Cider House.

There are also many Pokéstops around the Council House, including the Council House Fountain, the Council House Clock and many more!
Victoria Street / Wardwick / Friargate
Take a stroll to Friargate via The Wardwick from Victoria Street and visit some historical Pokéstops along the way.

The Derby Post Office is a grade II listed building which was built in 1870, it now houses Lola Lo's and several Pokémon.

The gothic splendour of Derby Central Library  which was established in 1879 is worth a visit as is the Derby Museum and Art Gallery and the footpath fossils outside.

Other Pokéstops in the area include The old railway office, Cheapside Church,  The Friary and The Friargate Clock.

Other Notable Pokéstops in Cathedral Quarter
There are a few other Pokéstops in Cathedral Quarter which are a little off the beaten track but well worth a visit!

Ford Street has the copper covered Derby Law School and the clock at the junction with Friargate is also a Pokémon gym.

Willows Megazone and Derby Joseph Wright College are also crawling with creatures for you to capture.

The final Pokéstops in the area are the Brass glyph art at Jury Street, the Henry Boden plaque at Bold Lane and Blacksmiths Yard in Sadlergate.
