National Park audio tour celebrates Alice in Wonderland

Published Thursday 25 February 2010

Viewers of Disney Studios’ new fantasy film version of Alice in Wonderland can learn more about its young heroine thanks to an audio tour on the New Forest National Park Authority’s website.

The audio tour celebrates Alice Liddell, the little girl who was the inspiration behind Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. As Alice Hargreaves she lived all her married life in Lyndhurst and took a great interest in local affairs.  She died in 1934 and her grave is in St Michael and All Angels’ churchyard.

The National Park Authority audio tour lasts for over 20 minutes and covers the history of Lyndhurst, the capital of the New Forest. Follow the walk online via interactive maps, or download the audio tour to an MP3 player and follow the trail round Lyndhurst.
