Meet Tweedledum & Tweedledee

Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee Haulfre Gardens Llandudno

 Tweedledum and Tweedledee are the latest Alice in Wonderland characters to arrive in Llandudno.  They can be found on their new perch in the Haulfre Gardens, just past the Tearooms.

The twins appear in ‘Through the Looking-Glass’, where Alice…

“…was startled by a voice coming from the one marked ‘DUM’.

” ‘If you think we’re wax-works’, he said, ‘you ought to pay, you know. Wax-works weren’t made to be looked at for nothing. Nohow!’

” ‘Contrariwise’, added the one marked ‘DEE’, ‘if you think we’re alive, you ought to speak.’

” ‘I’m sure I’m very sorry, was all Alice could say”.

Whether or not you talk to the sculptures is up to you!  Here’s a close up:
