Alice’s Shop / “The Old Sheep Shop” (Oxford, UK)
The most famous Alice in Wonderland shop is of course the souvenir shop in Oxford, which was actually encorporated into ‘Through the Looking Glass’! The little shop is literally stuffed to the brim with all kinds of Alice in Wonderland souvenirs. It is located directly in front of Christ Church, where Lewis Carroll and Alice lived, so you can combine a visit to these historical and fun places!

Alice on Wednesday (Tokyo/Nagoya/Osaka/Fukuoka, Japan)
This store is big: it encompasses 3 floors! But you’ll have to make an effort to enter it – there are several doors in the outer wall and you have to guess which door leads to the shop…
On the first floor of the shop is the ‘White Queen’s Kitchen’. This floor offers a variety of sweets, like popcorn and marshmallow, as well as ‘Drink Me’ bottles and ‘Eat Me’ cookies. On the second floor is the ‘Queen of Heart’s Courtroom’. It contains lots of accessories, like bags, (ear)rings, and necklaces. The top floor is the ‘Mad Hatter’s Atelier’. Here you can find miscellaneous Alice in Wonderland items, among which shirts, clocks, and umbrella’s.
The shop first opened its doors in October of 2014 in Nagoya and now they also have branches in Tokyo, Fukuoka, and Osaka. The four stores are similar, but not exact replica’s. The names of the floors differ and they also sell slightly different items. The shop in Osaka for example also sells products like tableware and stationery.
