Geocaching is basically a treasure hunt, using your mobile or GPS to find each hidden cache – usually a box or film canister. Each cache usually has a logbook to record your visit, and often some kind of small 'trade items' left by previous explorers. Take something, leave something, that's the rule.
We’ve created a trail for you to discover some of the history and heritage of Bridlington Quay’. Can you find all six caches hidden around the town centre?
If you’re inspired and want to find out more why not have a look at the town’s Maritime Trail
or our children’s architectural treasure hunt.Getting started
To look for caches, sign-up to www.geocaching.com
(which is free) or download the app. Once you've signed in, search for the Bridlington Quay Townscape Heritage caches in Bridlington town centre. The quickest way is to search using the King Street library postcode (YO15 2DF), you'll then find coordinates and clues for the nearest caches. About the trail
There is no specific order for finding the caches. The route is suitable for children, adults, pushchairs and most wheelchair users too. It should take around an hour to find all the caches. As there are lots of cafes why not take your time and enjoy something to eat and drink as well. Please take care with traffic and when walking around the harbour area.
Please enjoy the trail and please tell other cachers if you enjoyed it. And finally, watch out for muggles (as non-geocachers are known)!
