How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

The cache is a magnetic micro container with camo attached. It contains only a log, so please bring your own pen.

The cache is accessible from the street, so you do not need to enter the grounds of the tower.

Please take note of how the cache is positioned and return EXACTLY as found.


Stealth is required, particularly during the day. The difficulty level reflects this, rather than the cache being particularly difficult to find. This is a high muggle area and there is a school nearby, so please be considerate of school drop off/pick up times etc. ______________________________________________________________________________________

Belmont Tower

Belmont Tower is a unique and historic venue located on Belmont Road, in the heart of the CS Lewis District and nearby to Stormont Buildings.  Close to Belfast City Centre, only a few minutes’ drive for the George Best City Airport and all major road, bus and sea routes.

This landmark building, formerly Belmont Primary School, has a history dating back to the 1890s

The Gothic-styled late Victorian listed building was beautifully restored by The Old Belmont School Preservation Trust and is now a hive of activity offering classes, conference facilities, a coffee shop and CS Lewis exhibition.

Today it is used for a wide range of activities including conferences, seminars, away days, staff assessment centres, training, exhibitions, product launches, breakfast, lunch and dinner meetings, business networking, board and committee meetings, receptions, exercise classes, community events, craft fairs, markets and as a local meeting place in its coffee shop.
