Alice in Wonderland mirror house could sell for £1m

Herald Series: Lewis Carroll Lewis Carroll

A HOUSE containing the mirror which inspired Lewis Carroll to create the Alice in Wonderland stories could sell for £1m.

The writer, who studied in Oxford, met the real-life Alice when he stayed at the house in Cheltenham for four days in the 1860s.

He was visiting his friend Henry Liddell and his three daughters, one called Alice.

The house still features on its upstairs landing the 6ft by 5ft mirror, which is said to have inspired Carroll – whose real name was the Rev Charles Lutwidge Dodgson – to write Through the Looking Glass.
