Cambridge University Library


The University Library's tower; icon of the Cambridge skyline, enduring source of undergraduate legend, inspiration to authors from CS Lewis to Stephen Fry. Now take your turn to join these luminaries with your own exciting tale!

The treasures of Cambridge University Library’s fabled 17-storey Tower Collection, chosen from nearly a million volumes, will go on public display together for the first time in a free exhibition from May 2 - October 28, Tall Tales: Secrets of the Tower.

While exploring the exhibition, your group stumble across a concealed floor in the tower-and are locked in! In this interactive escape game, you will have 50 minutes to discover the secrets of the tower using its rich collections. Can you solve the puzzles, crack the clues, and avoid becoming another of the tower's many secrets?
