Visitors were enthralled by the city’s Curious Garden this Christmas.

The garden, which is a first for Liverpool, Williamson Square.

Alice and friends were on hand to welcome shoppers to the Curious Garden which offers children of all ages the chance to enter a different world.

Here, they experienced a sensory play garden, dancing fountains, a spin in larger than life teacups, a tumble in the crazy cottage and making a wish next to the very special Christmas tree.

There were a few more hidden surprises with special prizes to be won every day.

The attraction was created by City Central BID and took inspiration from the Alice exhibition at Tate Liverpool. The garden was open during shop opening hours.

“Outdoor events like The Curious Garden have made a massive difference to footfall and dwell time. November figures show a 14% rise on last November.” – Ged Gibbons, chief executive of Liverpool City Central BID
