The geocaches were launched in January 2016 and have already travelled over 8,000 miles.
The walk up to Brean Down is well worth the climb; a spectacular sight awaits you as you reach the top negotiated from a set of steps cut into the cliffs – you cannot help but stop in one of the passing places and look back towards the bay. The views will take your breath away. The fort is situated 1km from the steps as you begin your walk over this historic place there is so much to see and do.
Geocaching (pronounced: geo • cashing) is a game invented by pirates. Well, not exactly. But they were definitely on to something. As legend goes, swashbucklers hid their treasure and marked the spot so that they could find it again. Geocaching works the same way – only advances in technology have taken things to a whole new level.
Grab your GPS. It’s time to geocache.
Hidden treasure troves – known as caches – have been hidden around the world. Their coordinates have been uploaded to our website along with details and clues. All you have to do is load this information into a compatible GPS device and set out on an adventure to find them. If you want to take something from the cache, be sure to have something to leave behind for the next person to find.

A series of special caches containing artwork as part of the exhibition will be hidden before the Treasure Hunt for visitors to find. The caches will contain original works of art, alongside swaps and travel bugs for you to take away with links from QR codes for you to share your very own artwork in response to your visit at the Fort.
Really excited to be getting these ‘Cache in Trash Out’ Travel Bugs which will soon be attached to original art pieces as they go off on their journey in the coming weeks. We are hoping that the pieces and the stories from Brean will reach as many people as possible around the world, the more coastal destinations the better. On a date yet to be released, if the artwork is in your possession you get to keep it, just make sure you log it using the special number on the reverse of the tag when you find it.
