OK so yes it is small and very popular but there is something Wonderland like about trying to get your bearings and navigate the goods on display when your sight line and indeed your planned route are obscured.

I visited Alice's Shop on Saturday, March 25. It was very crowded, and that's not good when the shop is so small. It was hard to look at things because you could hardly turn around. They have a very good selection of all things related to Alice in Wonderland.

This is a sweet little shop filled to the brim with lovely Alice in Wonderland goodies. As a serious fan of the book, I was excited to visit the shop, but found the crowds of people packing it from the door to the back wall quite overwhelming! It was so crowded you had to wait for people to move before... More

All the tours tell you how the real Alice daughter of Lewis Carrol bought her sugar barley from here I think you expect marvellous things - in reality it is a tiny shop full of very nice things relating to the story, but priced very high and was claustrophobic with all the people crammed in. Worth a visit but don't... More
