Around Stockport Town Centre

Spring into Stockport and discover the surprises along Totally Stockport’s latest Augmented Reality Trail 

Totally Stockport is bouncing back with the launch of its second town centre Augmented Reality trail – socially distanced Springtime fun for all the family. 

Summer is on the way! But before it officially arrives, Spring into Stockport and discover the Spring Surprises Augmented Reality Trail. Follow the trail around the town centre as many times as you like until 12th June. 

New to augmented reality? No worries, it’s as easy as unwrapping a bar of chocolate or picking daffodils. Everyone with a mobile device can join in. Using the GPS enabled map in the app, you’ll be able to find and capture all the characters and scenes you’ll meet along the trail. 

Join the search and discover spring characters at bright locations across the town centre. Catch the eggs left behind by the Easter bunny; check out the giant Cheeping Chicks; dive in with the ducklings playing in the pond and you’ll love the cute lambs leaping over the fence.

Tap on the carrots in the vegetable patch, always loved by a hungry bunny and who doesn’t love daffodils but have you ever watched them grow so fast? And the Easter bunny had so many chocolate eggs, he’s left some for you to collect!

The trail has been designed for you to discover more about your town centre and have fun in a safe and socially distanced way. We hope you have a wonderful time and a great adventure – happy hunting!  Don’t forget to take selfies along the way and share your experiences on social media using the hashtag #stockportspringtrail

Everyone can take part:

Download the ‘Virtually Stockport’ app* from either the Google or Android App store, follow the trail around Stockport town centre and you can virtually meet and interact with all the spring characters.  Use the map in the app to find and collect each one.  

You can also pick up a trail map in Merseyway shopping centre, from some of the shops in the town centre or it can be downloaded from www.totallystockport.co.uk

*Once downloaded, the app will find and capture the spring characters and scenes you meet along the trail using an internet/data connection to download map data and make use of GPS to help you find your location on the trail route. Please ensure you adhere to the current government COVID-19 restrictions when using this app out and about in the town centre. Please be aware of others around you, exercise caution regarding the safety of your mobile phone device and, when engaging with the augmented reality characters, make sure you retain your distance from other participants and be aware of road safety and the potential slips, trips and falls when observing content on your mobile device.
