The Red Queen's Castle is built from stone with prominent red heart accents, the same color scheme as the Queen of Hearts card. It has many heart-shaped hedges and it also has gardens with many red roses and hedges cut into the shape of the Red Queen herself. There are many heart-shape designs outside and inside the castle. After the Red Queen's reign ended, she was banished to the Outlands, and the castle fell to ruin.
The Throne Room is where all of the Red Queen's subjects come to greet her. The throne room is a long corridor with large red pillars reaching up to the ceiling. The throne is a small, red heart shaped chair pushed back into a small indent with curtains on either side and a large stained glass window designed with hearts. There are stained windows on the sides of the room giving an illusion of a more spacious feel. The back wall of the entrance has a mural of the Red Queen on the Jabberwocky fighting off a gryphon. The middle section of the floor is checkerboard pattern covered by a red carpet leading up to the heart shaped stairs where the throne is placed. There are two doors on either side of the back wall.
The courtyard is filled with red rose bushes and a crocket game already set up. This is the only place in the castle that shows liveliness and greenery.
This room is like any other room except it is filled with fashion materials and hat manikins.
Red Queen's Chamber
This room is dimly lit with a huge balcony and presumably where the Red Queen sleeps.
The castle is largely seen in the film, especially during the midway point where all of Alice's scenes as are centered in and around the castle.
The castle is seen for a brief moment in the sequel. Standing in ruin, the castle has been overgrown by vines and has fallen into disrepair. The Red Queen's topiary head has also fallen.
- The Red Queen's Castle took heavy inspiration from all things chess and cards of hearts.
- The table in the Red Queen's chamber, greatly resembles the table with The Enchanted Rose in Beauty and the Beast.
- Similar to The Flintstones (albeit in a much more darker tone) animals are used in the Red Queen's castle as furniture, croquet equipment and other objects.
- There are a few problems with the animated geography of the castle location. Where as, in one scene there is a moat of heads surrounding the castle with a draw bridge, and in another it's just a rock and dirt path.
