Cambridge Diddy Doors
Fancy a Trip to Cambridge to Find Some Diddy Doors?
Adventure Geek is not your traditional walking club, we like to do things a little bit differently. It may be hunting for noses and ears in London, visiting a bone crypt or perhaps you fancy looking for weird and unusual things in Cambridge? Life is an adventure and we are here to help you have mini-adventures where you experience something a bit different.

DURATION OF EVENT
This is a one-day event.
We will meet outside The Church of Our Lady and the English Martyrs in Cambridge, which is where our walk begins and should be finished in time for lunch.
10am – The hunt for eight tiny doors which are no bigger than 6 inches, along with numerous other exciting and unusual things to see in Cambridge will begin. To give you a taste, you will be witnessing the graveyard which has the highest IQ in Britain, a bridge that has been constructed using gravity rather than nuts and bolts and a very weird clock!
When you meet up with the Adventure Geek Team at the church you will be handed a map with the locations and details of all the doors and unusual attractions that you will be looking for.
You will then have a choice to either have your own adventure, OR you can join Julia and Rachel for a guided walk. If you decide to walk with the AG team, then we will only guide you to the actual street. It will be your responsibility to hunt for the doors and the other quirky surprises yourself (which is the fun part).
- There will be a private WhatsApp Group where you can post your photos.
NEED TO KNOW
Adventure Geek Walks are open to anyone over the age of 10. However, anyone under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
Food & Drink
Please note we do not supply any food or drinks for this day walk, you will need to fend for yourself.
I am afraid dogs are not allowed on this trip, unless they are registered assistance dogs.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
There are no permissions expressed or implied by the Adventure Geek organisers. Participants make use of the facilities at their own risk and without express permission from the Adventure Geek organisers.
Walking is a physically active sport. If you have any doubts about your abilities, you should always seek advice from your GP before embarking on an Adventure Geek walk.
By registering for an event you accept that you do so entirely at your own risk and that it is your responsibility to ensure that you are fit and able to take part in the event. We regroup often and our walks cater for all levels of fitness.
Children under the age of 16 years old are the responsibility of their parents or guardians and need to be accompanied at all times before, during and after the walk.
Adventure Geek volunteers do not accept responsibility for injury, loss and damage sustained by a participant unless the above injury, loss and damage are proven to have been caused as a direct result of negligence on the part of the organisers.
Dogs are welcome on the majority of our walks, however, we kindly ask that only one dog per walker and that the welfare of the animal remains your responsibility throughout your walk. On occasion, we may add a note of “No dogs allowed” on specific walks (usually those with cattle), please respect this note.
This walk is not physically challenging, it is more of a fun walk with lots of sight seeing. You will spend time in Central Cambridge and we will point out all sorts of interesting things for you to see etc. Your map will not only give you information on the doors, but we have lots of other “quirky” things for you to discover on this trail. All will be revealed!
How far will you be walking?
If you are following the guided map, then you can expect to walk around 4 miles during the course of the day.
HISTORY OF THE DINKY DOORS
Created by Dinky Doors, the plan is to fill the world with mood-lifting and surprising delights. Just out of plain sight, but there to be unexpectedly spotted, nonetheless. And when you do spot them, it's enough to inject a bit of joy into your day. A moment of joy, that lifts your spirit and prepares you for the day's next challenge.
But why Dinky Doors? Well, we think curious little doors add a bit of unexpected wonder and mystery to the everyday. They're intriguing, cute, and spark the imagination, all with an extra dollop of good humour too.
Julia: I absolutely love this concept and I can't wait to help spread the world about this slice of magic in Cambridge.
