Cambridge Doorways

By Oxbridge Tours - Posted on 04 January 2015

Cambridge is full of secret passages and hidden entrances - You just need to know where to look... Here are some of the most characterful and wonderful doorways in Cambridge!

We have left some of the less obvious doorways as a challenge, if you know where they are leave us a comment under the link on Facebook for some free tickets to the Cambridge Ghost Tour!


1. New Court at St Johns


2. Entrance to Tree Court, Gonville and Cauis

3. A flash of colour on a Cambridge Street (not part of the challenge)
4. A Court doorway, Christ's College
5. The entrance to the Divinity Schools on a wet New Years Day evening
6. How's your local knowledge? (Guess this one for your free ticket!)
7. A well used doorstep beside a white foot-scraper 
8. The entrance to St Benets' Church, the scene of a romantic stop along the Ghost Tour
