The National Trust goes Geocaching


Geocaching, a modern-day treasure-hunt for all the family.

Geocaching (pronounced geo-kash-ing) is a hi-tech treasure hunt that requires a hand-held GPS or a GPS enabled mobile phone to find the geocaches or caches the coordinates of which are listed on websites.

The National Trust is offering visitors an exciting new way to explore its great outdoor places by partnering with GPS experts Garmin this summer.

Geocaching, a family friendly ‘digital’ treasure hunt, will be taking place at over 40 National Trust sites across the country. Visitors will be able to borrow a Garmin handheld GPS device to guide them to treasure ‘caches’ hidden in the countryside and coastland of National Trust sites.

These modern-day treasure-hunts are a fun way for all the family to get out and really experience the outdoors at over 40 National Trust places across the country.

Over the forthcoming months, Garmin will be hosting taster sessions at National Trust places, so visitors from across England, Wales and Northern Ireland can become 21st century treasure hunters.

The Geocaching Association of Great Britain (GAGB) has a lot of information and Groundspeak UK and Ireland has a forum to answer any question
