Phil's Puzzles

Welcome to my Puzzle Page!

I love creating and solving all sorts of puzzles - and as I'm under strict lockdown it's keeping me sane (just!)

These are mostly crosswords at the moment: cryptic, vocabulary and thematic: I'll be adding Wordsearches and other things as time goes by. Some of the thematic puzzles have a cryptic and a straight version - in those cases the answers are the same in each.

Click on one of the puzzles on the list and have a go ... if you want you can send any comments/suggestions/jokes to me at

Note: These are all completely free - there are no subscriptions required and no advertising. I do this just for fun!
