Welcome to Crosswords UK, Word & Anagram solving!
This site is dedicated to the UK's major cryptic crosswords published in The Times, The Telegraph, The Independent and The Guardian. Don't panic if cryptic crosswords make you break out into a sweat, there are guides for solving the clues and even some helpful tools when things are just too tough.
If you're new to the world of cryptic crosswords or have tried before and given up, then why not have a read of our guide 'The Basics'. This guide seeks to dispel the mystery and confusion that hangs around cryptic crosswords and to provide you with a basic 'tool set' for tackling one of the big ones.
If you've got a good grasp of the basics, then why not look at one of our more focused guides to clues, their structure and the clues within the clues!
If you're here because you're stuck, try our anagram solver or the crossword solver or, if that's your bag, our sudoku solver pages. If they don't help, drop into the forum and see if anyone can help.
