Having recently seen Tim Burton's wonderful take on Alice in Wonderland with a returning grown up Alice to Wonderland, and Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter striding down the table, here is the original Tenniel drawing."The table was a large one, but the three were all crowded together at one corner of it. "No room! No room!" they cried out when they saw Alice coming. "There's plenty of room!" said Alice indignantly, and see sat down in a large armchair at one end of the table"
I loved Lewis Carroll's Alice as a child and still have my book of Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass and always will love the characters and the poems.
I have never visited Oxford but according to the Qype reviews the shop is very small, so difficult to move around. Like the original:
"The shop seemed to be full of all manner of curious things - but the oddest part of all was, that whenever she looked hard at any shelf, to make out exactly what it had on it, that particular shelf was always quite empty: although the others round it were crowded as full as they could hold.But I mentioned Johnny Depp at the beginning so I couldn't leave without a very short trail from the film could I:
"Things flow about so here!" she said at last in a plaintive tone, after she had spent a minute or so in vainly pursing a large bright thing, that looked sometimes like a doll and sometimes like a work-box, and was always in the shelf next above the one she was looking at."
