Overview

Hidden around Cambridge you will find the famous Dinky Doors. They're delightful miniature sculptures to discover, and finding them makes for a fun and completely different way to explore the beautiful city of Cambridge.

The doors are especially loved by kids, but adults can also appreciate their humour and creativity too. They spark imaginations and make people smile. There’s even an elaborate story behind them that you can learn as you explore.

There are currently 14 doors to discover – each unique and designed to make you think and smile. Buying this tour gives you permanent access to all current and future doors .

The tour is self-guided so you can go at your own pace. You needn't visit all the doors on the same day and you can discover them in any order.

Every door has a video backstory as well as dinky facts and questions and answers to challenge you.

    Really fun way to explore Cambridge. Doors aren’t too tricky to find for younger children (aside from one but the satisfaction of finding it makes up for the hunt!). Only one word of caution, most of the doors are in the city centre, however, if you’re looking to find them all, there are a few that are a good walk away from the middle of town (over a mile) and one that’s a 15/20 min drive away (lovely location though - worth the trip). 4-stars only because of the fact you probably can’t (or it’s tricky to) do in a day without a car. Overall, loved it!

    We enjoyed a lovely afternoon cycling through Cambridge taking in most of the Dinky Doors. They are delightful, whimsical and (for the most part) surprisingly well hidden. The purchased tour helps you find them quickly and has fun and quirky explanations for what's behind them. If you are "loose" enough to engage with the Dinky alternate universe, the Doors Tour is delightful fun.

    We did the Dinky doors self guided tour for my son's 8th birthday... what fun! As it was definitely not Dinky-licious weather that day, we just did the 6 City centre doors but plan to pick up the others in the next few weeks/ months. All of us enjoyed it... the perfect family fun for two big children, 12 year old and 8 year old! Met a few other Dinky door hunters on our route too! A lovely way to see Cambridge, practise map skills and see some splendid dinky doors in the process! Highly recommend!!!

    The artwork is fun and imaginative. The installations are mainly in the centre of Cambridge and easy to find with the map. Allow maybe 45 minutes to see them all. A good excuse to traipse around Cambridge.

    Really long distance between them, not walkable to all doors. Not recommended sadly. Did spot one door after downloading a different tour and it looked good
