  • Carlisle

We asked Stephen Burns, who runs the PokémonGo Carlisle Facebook page, for some tips on where to "catch em all" in the city.

He told us that Bitts Park is one of the hotspots, with a large number of Pokestops and plenty of Pokémon.

Parts of Rickerby Park are also popular, and rarer Pokémon have been known to appear around the Cathedral.

Anyone hunting Pokémon in these areas should put safety first, and do so in groups.
