Llandudno, North Wales

Mathematical Gazetteer of the British Isles


Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) is believed to have visited Dean Liddell, father of Alice, at his summer house, Pen Morfa, Llandudno. The house (or site) is now part of the Gogarth Abbey Hotel. Supposedly, he wrote part of Alice in Wonderland here in 1864, reading his daily writing to the assembled family and guests.

Carroll is commemorated by a White Rabbit with Alice near the Model Yacht Pond and the font in the Church of Our Saviour. However, Roger Lancelyn Green says he certainly never visited the Liddells here and the image of Carroll reading his daily output is quite inconsistent with his general behaviour.
