Discover a magical world of stories...

Step through a wardrobe into Narnia, fly with a snowman or play Pooh sticks in the Hundred Acre Wood. Get ready to party in a disused swimming pool and see if you can cut your way through into another world. Create your own adventure based on the bestselling Choose Your Own Adventure book series, where you alone are in charge of what happens in your story. Or sit at the writing desk owned by C.S. Lewis and have a go at writing your own story.

Buy a Museum ticket for the Galleries and explore the Enchanted Library. Where else can you wander between the shelves and find yourself inside a story? Lose yourself in imaginary worlds – memorable moments from favourite stories, chosen with the help of thousands of children and young people.

Explore 200 years of classics on page, stage and screen and discover how each golden age of storytellers has inspired the next. Whether you prefer pictures or poetry, mind-blowing fantasy or side-splitting humour, you’ll find books and comics, films and games that you already know and others you’ll want to find out more about filling the shelves in our extraordinary library.

New for 2024: New Alice in Wonderland story space

Tumble down the rabbit hole in our newly renovated Alice in Wonderland story space! Solve puzzles, tongue-twisters and word games, dress up as your favourite Wonderland character and see if you can spot the White Rabbit. Don't be late for this important date!
