Event description

Description

A new extended tour of Alice's Oxford with local historian and author Mark Davies, the only Oxford guide endorsed by the Lewis Carroll Society. Combining two previously separate circular walks, this two-hour plus tour will encompass most of the Oxford locations of greatest significance to Lewis Carroll and the real Alice, daughter of the Dean of Christ Church, as well as referencing other Oxford classics of children's literature.

Starting the University Museum of Natural History (look for the Dodo!) in Parks Road and ending at Alice's Shop in St Aldates, the near three-mile linear route will pass through some less visited, quieter parts of the city, incorporating a mixture of ancient, modern, and semi-rural landscapes.

Passing alongside the River Thames (all-important in the creation of the story of Alice's Adventures) and the Cherwell, past Christ Church and other key landmarks (including the ‘loveliest building of the plain’), via the resting place of two Hatters, and through University Parks (Pleasure and Delight guaranteed!), many of the real people, places, and events which inspired the story will be revealed by the author of Alice in Waterland' and Alice's Oxford on Foot.

NOTE: this walk will be reversed in the morning, starting at 11am from outside Alice's Shop and ending at the University Museum of Natural History. See separate booking page.
