Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although this is generally quite harmless you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of that website.


Official GeoTour Host LogoGeocaching is a real-world treasure hunt that combines being outdoors, exercise and technology. We have created the South Downs GeoTour to help you to discover the hidden gems in the National Park.

Anyone can play. Using the Geocaching smartphone app, GPS or paper map, you seek out secret caches hidden by other players – there are now more than two million stashed around the world. Sign up for a free account at and start playing today.

  1. A geocacher hides a geocache (never buried), lists it on and challenges you to find it using the Geocaching app or a GPS device.
  2. The geocaches will contain logbook for finders to sign. Once you’ve found it you log your experience online at or on a Geocaching App.
  3. Sometimes people will also leave small trinkets for trade in the cache. If you take something you should always replace it with something of equal or greater value.
  4. You then return the geocaches to the spot where you found it.
