The Geocaching Association of Great Britain (GAGB) is the leading UK Geocaching body, recognised by and acting on behalf of cachers. The association was established in 2003 to provide a voice for its members in the United Kingdom with the aim of establishing good geocaching practices, providing a focal point for public liaison and supporting the growth and enjoyment of Geocaching within the UK.
You can join the GAGB group on Facebook.
The world's largest geocaching website, and one of the biggest resources for geocachers all over the world. If you are intending to do any caching it is more-or-less obligatory to sign up for (free) membership of this website so you can download cache details. We upload all our public caches to this website.
