Alice in Wonderland activity

Alice in wonderland

Alice in WonderlandWe would like to share some tips on how you and your family can have fun, learn and be inspired by Guildford's heritage at home!

Did you know that Lewis Carroll wrote 'Alice Through the Looking Glass' in his rooms at the White Lion Hotel in Guildford! 

In our collection we have one of the books signed by Alice Liddell, the girl who inspired Carroll to write the stories. 

Carroll's sisters lived in Guildford in a house called The Chestnuts, just around the corner from Guildford Museum.
