Cat goes to Wonderland!

Hey everyone! Welcome back to the Paper Castles, sorry I’ve been gone for a whole week! But in this week I have been on another adventure this time to Wonderland, or should I say Groombridge Place in Kent.

For the whole of the Easter Holidays Groombridge Place has become home to all the characters from Alice in Wonderland. The day is based around 3 short plays (repeated if you missed them) which include the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, the infamous Jam Tart trial, and the ‘painting the roses red’ scandal. Essentially the King of Hearts was constantly in trouble.

The plays are very well constructed and are easy to follow for children or people who haven’t read the book and for those who know the book like the back of their hand. And it was packed with humour that actually had me crying with laughter.

In between the plays you can walk around the grounds and talk to all the characters and there are crafts for children too, plus an ice cream shack, a river boat ride, a café and a gift shop. It really does have everything and it was nice to have a cup of tea wherever I went.

I had such a great time at Groombridge, and its not that far to go if you want a day out and you live in London, well worth it. Click here for a link to Groombridge’s website. Also special thanks to my lovely boyfriend for letting me use the official photos he took for Groombridge.
