Art collective Dinky Doors has been installing the miniature gateways around the city in hidden locations over recent months, but the latest creation is in a more visible spot.

Number 10 and a Quarter Downing Street, which is outside the Museum of Zoology, looks like a tiny version of the Prime Minister’s front door. Although its inhabitant seems to have purple tentacles.

A spokesperson from Dinky Doors told the Cambridge Independent: “We have seen lots of people stop and do a double take when they see the door – and children seem to love it. When we installed the door on Downing Street in Cambridge on Sunday night, we were spotted by a security guard at the Museum of Zoology and were worried we would have to remove it.

“But the museum staff say they are delighted with the door, so we hope it is there to stay. We were inspired to build it because the Supreme Leader sent us a message to say things were going wrong and that this portal could restore the balance. We think the purple monster behind the door must be visiting from the Museum of Zoology and it is definitely not a political comment.”

Other Dinky Doors around Cambridge include the Reality Checker on Parker’s Piece and the Teleport-O-Matic machine tucked between some city phone boxes.

Dinky Doors said it would release a new portal a month and added there may be a visit from the Supreme Leader very soon.
