A Pokémon GO event will be run in Chester in the United Kingdom from July 22 to 23, 2017. This event is being run in collaboration with Big Heritage, the UK heritage organization.

From July 22 to 23, 2017 (the weekend of the Chester Heritage Festival), events will be staged across Chester, including activities based at Chester Castle, which will be open to the public for the first time in 20 years. The event is described as including trail activities, with in-game and real-world "surprises".

Historical sites in Chester will be turned into PokéStops. Big Heritage will also work with schools across the Cheshire and Merseyside regions starting in September 2017 to encourage young people to explore and learn about their local area by playing Pokémon GO.
