Alice's Shop

About

The Alice's Shop in Oxford is the authentic Alice in Wonderland Shop because it is part of the original story. Situated across the road from Alice's childhood home, the Oxford University college of Christ Church, Alice's Shop was Alice's sweet shop 150 years ago. Lewis Carroll wrote the shop into the Alice adventures in Through the Looking-Glass and the illustrator, Sir John Tenniel, sketched two illustrations of the shop for the original book. An entire episode in the story takes place in the shop.

Oxford is the birth place of Alice in Wonderland and many inspirations for the stories came from Oxford. Alice's Shop is the most tangible link to an episode in the book still in existence today. When you step into Alice's Shop you are stepping into the Victorian world of Alice.

Today the shop is a treasure trove of Alice in Wonderland gifts and memorabilia. Come and visit our shop in Oxford.
