Can you find what Alice found?

Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There

Lewis Carroll wrote his sequel to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland  in 1871. Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There  is set a few months after the first book. This time Alice climbs through a mirror to enter a fantasy world.

The book includes Alice’s meeting with characters such as The Red Queen and Humpty Dumpty . She also meets Tweedledum and Tweedledee, who recite the poem The Walrus and the Carpenter.

While Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland incorporated  cards, Through the Looking-Glass concerns Alice’s journey across a chess board. Throughout her expedition Alice is confronted by things that are not as they seem. In the world on the other side of the mirror’s reflection there are many mirror themes, including opposites, time running backwards, and so on.

Things are not always what they seem

Take a trip to Wonderland at The National Gallery with Treasure Hunts In London. Join the Red Queen and Alice on an adventure through the looking glass. Explore the labyrinth of rooms and exhibitions, where you’ll realise that appearances are deceptive and nothing is what it seems.

Along the way, solve themed puzzles and complete photo challenges. Just don’t get lost down the rabbit hole… otherwise you’ll be late for the drinks at a nearby pub, where you can chat with other players, have a well-earned drink and find out who won the National Gallery prizes up for grabs.

Book your tickets for Through the Looking-Glass at the National Gallery on Friday 9 September at 6pm
