Two Tours in One! Crop Circles: There are few mysteries more accessible than crop circles. Each spring and summer these enigmatic patterns appear overnight in crop fields, particularly around the Avebury landscape temple in Wiltshire, England. Whenever possible we enter these beautiful creations within hours of their forming, when the energy of a genuine formation is at its strongest. We have access to the information network that provides breaking news on the latest formations.

Some days expert researchers will join us in the circles to share their knowledge and perspectives with us, showing us what to look for or how to dowse for any energy present. You may want to sit quietly in meditation, try and discover what the pattern is (often difficult to tell from the ground inside a formation) or dance with the flow of the lain stalks. Everyone reacts differently to crop circles but no-one can ignore them.
Included in the July tour is attendance at the world-renowned Glastonbury Symposium - Signs of Our Times. This is a weekend event held right in the center of Glastonbury allowing for you to pick and choose those presentations you wish to attend and time to visit the sacred sites of Glastonbury. Included in the August tour is attendance at the Marlborough Crop Circle Conference, a weekend event organized by the Wiltshire Crop Circle Study Group. This is always a wonderfully enlightening conference held within the shadow of the important sacred site of Merlin's Mound.

You will have the opportunity to fly above the formations you have visited in a small chartered helicopter! This year’s CC&SS tour is a 10-day tour based exclusively in the heart of crop circle country and very close to Avebury and many other remarkable sacred sites.

Sacred Sites: This part of England is blessed with very special sacred sites which we will visit. Your tour guides have been investigating sacred sites and their connection to the crop circles for many years and you will learn about the importance of both energy and water and be able to dowse for them. This knowledge along with the history and legends we share with you will give you a key to understanding power centers in the landscape such that sacred sites will never look the same again!
- Stonehenge - where our group will have exclusive access to this world famous ancient monument for a private visit outside of normal hours.
- Glastonbury on the fabled Isle of Avalon, including:
Glastonbury Abbey – once the largest and most powerful abbey in all of England, it is the reputed burial place of King Arthur & Queen Guinevere.
- Glastonbury Tor – a magical hill and a beacon of spirituality since Pagan times.
- Chalice Well – possibly England’s most sacred holy well where you will be invited to drink of these healing waters.
- Avebury Landscape Temple - the energetic heart centre of Megalithic Britain including: Avebury Henge – the largest stone circle in the world.
- The Sanctuary – the head of the serpent temple
- Knoll Down – a natural cathedral of trees at the tail of the serpent.
- Silbury Hill – a huge artificial mound with remarkable energetic properties.
- West Kennet Long Barrow – an ancient underground initiatory chamber with powerful acoustics.
- Merlin's Mound & Morgan’s Hill – profound sacred sites reflecting male/female energies either side of Avebury.

Tour Itinerary for July:

Day 1: Your tour guides, Glenn and Cameron Broughton, will meet the group at Heathrow airport after your overnight flight. We will travel in comfortable minibuses to our hotel in Devizes, Wiltshire. You will have time to rest up, or take lunch and then explore this charming market town. There is a good range of shops, cafes, restaurants, markets and pubs readily available as our hotel is situated right in the center of town in the old marketplace. The hills and fields around the town are a popular venue for crop circles as is the whole countryside stretching east. The majority of crop circles each year occur within 15 miles of our hotel. Welcome orientation and introductions followed by dinner. Dinner at the hotel

Day 2: After a briefing session we will go into our first crop circles. You’ve seen the pictures and now is your chance to personally experience them first-hand. Your expert tour guides, who have been into many formations over the last ten years, will show you what to look for and how to dowse for any energies present. At various times during the tour we will be joined by some of the top crop circle researchers who will share their views, knowledge and expertise with us. What better way to learn all about this amazing phenomenon than by being in the circles in the fields and having experts on hand to guide you. Free-choice dinner (not included in tour price)

Day 3: This day within the Avebury Landscape Temple starts by visiting the five thousand year old Silbury Hill. We will also visit West Kennet Long Barrow, an underground chamber used both as a tomb and a place of initiation, which has wonderful acoustics. Knoll Down, a tranquil sacred grove of trees, was once connected to Avebury by an avenue of stones stretching for over a mile in length. In the afternoon we will visit any crop circles situated close by the ancient sacred sites we have visited.
Dinner at hotel.

Day 4: Today we spend in the heart of crop circle country. Just six miles from our hotel is Avebury, the heart center of megalithic Britain. Here, within the largest stone circle in the world, we find the remains of two former stone circles, one solar and one lunar. All the sacred sites in this area center on Avebury, including Stonehenge some twenty miles distant. Powerful earth energy currents course through this landscape and this may be one reason why the majority of crop circles occur within a 10-mile radius of Avebury. We will explore some of the amazing sacred sites and their associated crop circles in this remarkable landscape temple. We will have a free afternoon in Devizes. Free-choice dinner (not included in tour price).

Day 5: Other ancient sacred sites in the area include Merlin’s Mound, Morgan’s Hill, Windmill Hill and the Sanctuary. Our itinerary will be flexible according to the locations of new crop circles and which sites are nearby. Dinner at a local restaurant included in tour price

Day 6: A full day of visits to crop circles and sacred sites. Free-choice dinner (not included in tour price).

Day 7: We start the day with an early morning visit to Stonehenge. We have arranged for the group to have private special access into the stones of the world's most famous sacred site. Touch the huge megaliths which have stood in magnificent isolation on the windswept Salisbury Plain for thousands of years, feel the pulse of powerful earth energy currents coursing beneath your feet, imagine the ceremonies which have been performed by robed priests over aeons of time or just sit in quiet meditation. This is a rare opportunity to truly experience a site revered by countless generations. We then have breakfast in nearby Amesbury and a chance to swap Stonehenge stories. Then, for those who choose the helicopter flight, we’re off to the local airfield for a flight above the Circlemakers’ exquisite cosmic works of art in small chartered helicopters – truly the high spot of the tour for many! Those not flying will be taken for personal time in Salisbury. Then we move hotel to Wells in Somerset. Wells is built around a lively market-place with a wishing-well fountain in the market square. Water from the city’s wells and springs runs in open gullies by the sidewalks in many of the central streets. This splendid medieval city is one of England's best-kept secrets! Out of the door of our hotel, across Cathedral Green, is the city’s magnificent 800-year-old English gothic Wells Cathedral. The other side of the cathedral is the Vicar’s Close, the oldest complete medieval street in all of Europe, and still housing boys of the cathedral choir as it has done since it was built. Standing majestically next door is the Bishop’s Palace, a 700-year-old occupied palace complete with a moat and a drawbridge, home to families of swans - an ideal location for a peaceful evening stroll. Dinner at hotel.

Day 8: We will spend the next two days visiting the sites of Glastonbury and attending Glastonbury Symposium – the longest running crop circle conference in England. The Symposium is held in the town hall right in the middle of town making it easy for you to attend the presentations of your choice and explore all that Glastonbury has to offer. The town is full of unusual shops selling everything from candles and incense to colourful clogs and Goddess statues. Rising dramatically from the flat land of the surrounding Somerset Levels, the huge natural mound of the Tor, surmounted by St. Michael’s tower, has been a beacon of spirituality since pagan times and still acts as a magnet for people of all beliefs. Plus the views from the top are spectacular! We visit the beautiful and tranquil gardens of Chalice Well, one of the true healing places in this land where you are encouraged to drink from the holy well. Some believe that the Holy Grail is hidden within the wellhead. Glastonbury Abbey, once the largest and most powerful abbey in all of Britain, contains a grave in the center of the Abbey ruins that is reputed to have been the resting place of King Arthur and Guinevere. It is no coincidence that the dual energy currents of England’s most famous leyline cross at the site of the high altar. The abbey is located next door to the Symposium. Free-choice dinner in Glastonbury (not included in tour price).

Day 9: Farewell Dinner at hotel

Day 10: Leave hotel to drive to Heathrow for return flight home. All activities are, of course, optional and so there is scope in the itinerary to take extra free personal time.

Tour itinerary for the August tour:

Day 1: Your tour guides, Glenn and Cameron Broughton, will meet the group at Heathrow airport after your overnight flight. We will travel in comfortable minibuses to our hotel in Marlborough, Wiltshire. You will have time to rest up, or take lunch and then explore this charming market town. Marlborough received its royal charter as a town 800 years ago and has a fine selection of buildings from many periods in history. It has the widest High street in England where street markets are still held. It also has Merlin’s Mound, a 5,000-year-old sacred site that gives the town its name.

There is a good range of shops, cafes, restaurants, markets and pubs readily available as our hotel is situated right in the center of town.
The hills and fields around the town are a popular venue for crop circles as is the whole countryside stretching west. The majority of crop circles each year occur within 15 miles of our hotel. Welcome orientation and introductions followed by dinner. Dinner at the hotel.

Day 6: We will spend the whole of this day in Glastonbury, otherwise known as the Isle of Avalon. Rising dramatically from the flat land of the surrounding Somerset Levels, the huge natural mound of the Tor, surmounted by St. Michael’s tower, has been a beacon of spirituality since pagan times and still acts as a magnet for people of all beliefs. You will hear the stories and the legends as well as experience the powerful energy and atmosphere of this sacred site. Plus the views from the top are spectacular! We visit the beautiful and tranquil gardens of Chalice Well, one of the true healing places in this land where you are encouraged to drink from the holy well. Some believe that the Holy Grail is hidden within the wellhead. We will also visit the White Springs across the lane and note the different properties of the waters.

Glastonbury Abbey, the birthplace of Christianity in England and referred to as the ‘holiest earth in England’, was once the largest and most powerful abbey in all of Britain. It is no coincidence that the dual energy currents of England’s most famous leyline cross at the site of the high altar. A grave in the center of the Abbey ruins is reputed to have been the resting place of King Arthur and Guinevere.

Glastonbury is full of unusual shops selling everything from candles and incense to colourful clogs and Goddess statues that you can peruse at your leisure during a long lunch break. Dinner at the hotel.

Day 7: We will spend the weekend attending the Crop Circle Conference in Marlborough organized by the Wiltshire Crop Circle Study Group. There will be international crop circle researchers present and a variety of presentations covering many different aspects of this amazing phenomenon as well as related topics.

The conference is held just five minutes walk from Marlborough town center so you will be able to go into town to eat or for shopping. This conference is unique in being held just yards away from Merlin’s Mound, a five-thousand-year-old sacred site with a remarkable story to tell. Dinner not included in tour price.
