The Mad Hatter's Tea Party – Warrington, England - Atlas Obscura

The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

In Warrington’s Golden Square, it's always tea time. 


Charles Dodgson, more famously known as Lewis Carroll, spent the first decade of his life in Daresbury, a village close to Warrington. 

In honor of Carroll, creator of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the town commissioned artist Edwin Russell to recreate one of fiction’s most famous and fantastic feasts. ‘The Mad Hatters Tea Party’ is frozen in granite, with Alice looking curiously upon the top-hatted Hatter, sleepy Dormouse, and the manic March Hare.

Unveiled in 1984, the scene invites passersby themselves to take a seat at the frenetic festivities and celebrate their unbirthday alongside some of literature’s most iconic, and kooky, characters.
