The most notable attributes of Daresbury are
that it was the birthplace
of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland author Lewis Carroll
(real name Charles Dodgson).

Daresbury has become a place of pilgrimage because
of the Lewis Carroll association.
There is a recently completed Lewis Carroll Visitor Centre.
The parish church of All Saints has a Lewis Carroll window, including an image of the Cheshire Cat.
