    Hi Welcome.

    There are several listing sites by far the largest is http://www.geocaching.com/

    You will need to log on there and create an account. It is free, if you enter your postcode when prompted it will show you the nearest to home. To start with select traditionals (the cache is at the coords given) all caches have a terrain and difficulty rating from 1 to 5. So a 1/1 is the easiest and 5/5 the hardest. Aim for the lower end of the scale for the first few.

    Which part of the country are you from? Someone may offer some local help.

    If you're not already registered on GC.com, stand by to change your name.

    As well as the site mentioned, Opencaching UK has recently started and is aimed at UK cachers rather than a worldwide audience.

    Welcome to the hobby.

    As has been said there are various sites to use to get cache details :

    www.geocaching.com

    www.terracaching.com

    www.opencaching.org.uk

    www.navicache.com

    geocaching.com are the largest and are worldwide. All are free to join and will give you details of caches located closest to you. Something worth considering is attending an event cache. Basically a good excuse for a group of cachers to meet up and have a chat.

    And we're here to help with anything we can
