The Alice in Wonderland Shop was the Victorian sweet shop visited by Alice Liddell, the prototype for the character of Alice in Lewis Carroll's books. Shown in 'Through the Looking Glass', the shop now offers a wide range of Alice in Wonderland gifts. Personally, I preferred the gallery where you can find books on the subject, original prints and illustrations etc. But, if you are travelling with children, they will probably love the shop, which is full of all kinds of curiosities. It might even encourage them to read the two books, if they don't know them yet.
When you get tired of browsing through the stocks, take a rest in the tearoom, which is now closed for the winter though. Perhaps just as well as this place is said locally to be very expensive - only for tourists.
Update: Actually, my picture shows the old Alice's Shop as it used to look. It is now Cafe Loco and the shop is just two doors away from it.
What to buy: Books, old prints
What to pay: It depends on your choice of items
