About
One of the most famous little shops in the world can be found in Oxford just across the road from Christ Church College. The Alice’s Shop in Oxford is world famous because the shop itself was written into the Alice adventures over 150 years ago. The small shop was dubbed “Alice’s Shop” locally as soon as the stories became well known, even as it continued as a grocery and sweet shop. Since the mid-60s, the shop began to sell Alice in Wonderland souvenirs.The Shop is now a treasure trove of Alice in Wonderland themed gifts, souvenirs and memorabilia. Alice’s Shop is one of the most tangible links to an entire episode in the Alice in Wonderland adventures and offers lovers of the stories a moment of intimate connection with the World of Alice as well as an insight into Carroll’s creation.

Quirky little shop

Quirky little shop selling everything you could ever imagine connected with Alice. Owner is so helpful and pleasant. Stop by for a visit when you’re in Oxford.

Cute shop and the owner was very informative. He was good with covid guidelines and hygiene, ensuring all used sanitiser and walked a specific route around the tiny shop!

Shame it isn’t still a sweet shop!

Lovely little shop, emphasis on little. Would be brilliant if it were more like the original sweet shop and sold old fashioned sweets than full of overpriced Alice ‘memorabilia’.

Whilst visiting Oxford and being ALICE in Wonderland fans we sought out Alice’s Shop close to Christ Church college Disappointing for us Much of the items were just the usual touristy bits and some seemed overpriced Maybe it was just an off day !

Nice shop for souvenirs or gifts
Oct 2019
A cozy little shop where you can find all things Alice in Wonderland. Situated right across the street from Christ Church college, where Lewis Carroll taught at the time that he wrote the book. The shop has curated this history since the 1870s. A good place to find a gift or souvenir.

There is a lot of history to this building and the signage draws you to this shop but inside it is very small and not laid out particularly well. You are not allowed to take photos inside either and most of the gifts were hardly unique and came at a rather expensive price. A novel idea but poorly executed.
