Few can explain the mystery of crop circles, even fewer can explain the sheer volume that appear in rural Wiltshire- the crop circle capital of the UK!

Crop Circle Tours

Ours exclusive tours have permission to visit many of the Wiltshire Crop Circles. Led by local expert guides

These large inexplicable patterns that appear in fields have been rampant in the area since the 1960s- and are largely associated with UFOs- but what is the history of these perplexing configurations, where can they be found and how do experts believe they are formed?

Arcane geometric patterns.

Where can they be found?

Short answer, Wiltshire. The country has the highest rate of crop circles in the world! Wonderful field patterns pop up all over the county every year.  More specifically, the infamous ‘Warminster triangle’ has a large concentration of these crop circles within Wiltshire.

The dawn of Warminster circles infamy can be traced back to events that took place in 1964, when the ‘Warminster mystery’ took place- the UKs largest mass UFO spotting.

Arthur Shuttlewood recounts in The Warminster Mystery:

‘The air was brazenly filled with a menacing sound…

Sudden vibrations came overhead, chilling in intensity’

Ever since this spike in paranormal activity, crop circles have appeared in the area with formidable regularity- coincidence? The area of the ‘Warminster Triangle’ covers a large portion of Wiltshire and is a must visit for any crop circle enthusiasts.

Speaking of must visits for crop circle enthusiasts – The crop circle exhibition and information centre in Pewsey. The true hub for all the vital information about the history and science of crop circles in Wiltshire, located in the core of crop circle country, Honey Street Village. Here you can link up with fellow crop circle fanatics and discover more about crop circles from experts in ‘the field’. The centre contains fascinating photos of the previous year’s ‘crop’ of photos- and they can direct you to this season’s finest offerings.

“The multi-exhibition features the key facts of crop circle phenomenon and mixes it with stunning photography.”( http://www.cropcircleaccess.com/)

Cryptic rural engravings no one ever sees being formed.

What are the Stats?

Every year Wiltshire sees 30- 40 unique crop circles – which is, as I have mentioned, the highest rate of any area in the world. The circles tend to be around 60m across but can reach far greater sizes. For example, in 2001 at Milk Hill a 238m crop circle appeared overnight! It is impossible to predict where these circles will appear, what they look like and just how big they’re going to be.

What makes the crop circles?

And so, we reach the crucial questions – how are crop circles creates?

Unfortunately, there is no definitive answer- but there are several popular theories. The link between UFOs and crop circles seems to be the most popular explanation. Reports from farmers of strange lights in the sky usually accompany the arrival of a new crop circle, which would perhaps suggest alien interference from above. Next time you are examining a crop circle on the ground, perhaps you should look up.

Experts in the area of alien interference in crop circles have prospered an explanation named the ‘Plasma vortex phenomenon’. The theory has spawned from research at various crop circle sites where changes to the soil composition, changes in seed germination, and evidence of a brief flash of intense heat, have led to the suggestion that the cause is ‘spinning vortexes of microwave frequencies’.

Whether you think they are caused by UFOs, earth energies or anything else, you need to see these incredible geometric etchings first-hand – and Wiltshire is the centre of the crop circle universe. Join us this summer!

The Stonehenge Access VIP Experience

This is a rare opportunity to visit the most mystifying Prehistoric site in the world. The special access tour gets you into the inner circle of the stones- either in the early morning (sunrise) or evening (sunset). The stones are closed off to the general public and you will be able to walk amongst the stones! The Stones true glory is magnified by the silence of the surroundings. It feels like it is just you and the stones, connected to their ancient mysteries in a new way.

In the evening after Stonehenge is closed to the public, or at dawn before it is open, we arrange these exclusive access tours for you. Without the distraction of the crowd you can truly appreciate the wonder of the UK’s greatest prehistoric landmark. Few people can claim to have walked amongst these most ancient stones, as our ancestors did, and to have felt themselves miniscule stood next to the giant sarsen stones towering 6.4 meters high and weighing up to 50 tonnes. Close encounters with stones endows the wanderer with a true appreciation of the mysteries of our history, but also the scale and majesty of our entire university- e specially when the transitioning sky above the monoliths provides the cosmos as the background to one of the worlds greatest wonders.

Normal viewing only permits access from the path that surrounds the circle. Instead of being passive you can Interact with 5,000 year old history- entering the enigma itself. Stonehenge dates from 3100BC- you will be walking where very few people have access, especially in recent years. And to accompany the up close experience with the stones, an expert tour guide will regale you with stories of its history, tales of its mystery and accounts of its magic.

Stonehenge Stone Circle News and Information

Was it a Neolithic calendar? A solar temple? A lunar observatory? A calculating device for predicting eclipses?
Or perhaps a combination of more than one of these? In recent years Stonehenge has become the very icon of ancient astronomy, featuring in nearly every discussion on the subject. And yet there are those who persist in believing that it actually had little or no connection with astronomy at all.

Stonehenge is situated on the edge of Salisbury Plain, the Landscape occupies a large, sparsely populated area ideal for stargazing.   These dark skies provide the perfect environment to see the stars in all their detail, so why not organise a night-time trip to see what you can discover?
