A 90 minute circular walk around beautiful Christ Church Meadow with local historian and author Mark Davies, a trustee of the Lewis Carroll Society. The route will follow waterside paths familiar to the real Alice (the daughter of the Dean of Christ Church) and Lewis Carroll to highlight in particular the all-important role of the River Thames in the creation of the Alice books. With reference to relevant local history and geography, as well as other classics of fantasy literature, the walk will reveal some of the real people, places, and events which inspired some of the characters and episodes. The walk does NOT include entrance to the buildings of Christ Church itself.

The majority of the route is suitable for wheelchair users, with the exception of the final (less informative) section where participants can carry on to the Museum, where numerous relevant objects are on display.
