A fundamental part of the tales of Alice in Wonderland, Alice’s Shop features in the original story written by Lewis Carroll. 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, and was written into Alice’s adventures. Illustrator of Through the Looking-Glass, Sir John Tenniel, sketched two illustrations of the shop for the original book. An entire episode in the story even takes place in the shop.

Oxford is the birthplace 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 that is still in existence today, and when you step into Alice’s Shop you are stepping into the Victorian world of Alice.

Today the shop is home to a treasure trove of Alice in Wonderland ephemera, including:

  • Books
  • Table & Chinaware
  • Accessories
  • Ornaments & Figurines
  • Fabrics
  • Prints & Pictures, Framed Tiles & Stationery
  • Clocks & Watches
  • Puppets & Puzzles
