A LISTING for a tiny room in a London flatshare has left the internet baffled – because the entrance appears to be through a wardrobe.
It has drawn comparisons to fictional land Narnia thanks to its unusual opening, with one Twitter user joking you’d be “lodging with Mr Tumnus” should you rent it.

The posting on SpareRoom described the room, which is in Whitechapel, east London, as a “Cosy Bright Double Room.”
The angle of the photos suggest that the estate agent had to stand on the bed in order to capture the space because the room is so cramped.
While it features a bed and tiny desk, there is no sign of a door in the room because it looks like the wardrobe unit has been plonked in front of it.
One viewer joked on Twitter that it reminded her of the CS Lewis children’s’ book The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.
Becky Brynolf quipped: “£145 a week to lodge with Mr Tumnus.”
She shared the ad, and captioned the post: “Please look at these pictures and tell me the window – OR THE WARDROBE – isn’t the only way to get in or out of this room #renting #london.”
The poky room was advertised for £572 per month with a deposit of £620.
The listing has now been deleted.
In its description, the agent hawking the room had written: “The room itself is massive yet warm and cosy, with an amazing view and lots of natural light!
“Plenty of storage, it comes with a single bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers.”
The tenant would be sharing the flat with two women and one man, all in their 20s.
It took us a while to work out if there was even a way in
There is no living room or garden but the property does come furnished and have broadband, according to the advert.
A series of other hilarious comments were posted on Twitter.
Erin replied: “The wardrobe is on wheels. So you simple roll it towards the bed and squeeze through. Easy peasy!”
Ben James posted: “Is this an escape room?”
Lucy Cohen added: “Valiant attempt by the estate agent to use a wide angle lens.”
Dan replied: “I think the hat on the wall is a nice touch too.

“See? A wardrobe AND a coat hook. If anything, you’ll have too much storage space.”
Matt Hutchinson, Director of SpareRoom, said: “That’s one tiny space and as soon as our moderators spotted it it was removed.
