The Houndsditch Home for Wayward Youth is a shelter in London for unfortunate children, especially orphans, run by Dr. Angus Bumby. It is where Alice: Madness Returns begins and where Alice Liddell lives.
To much of the outside world, and the residents, Houndsditch Home is a completely normal orphanage. The place, however, has a much darker secret - Bumby uses his hypnotherapy skills to make the children forget who they are; to turn them into mindless prostitutes used to fulfill Bumby's desires, as well as the buyer's sexual pleasure.
His strategy worked very well until Alice came along, and used Wonderland to find the memories that he made her forget. While doing this, she realized that he was responsible for the fire that killed her family. She eventually kills him in Moorgate Station after confronting him.
It is unknown what happened to the inhabitants and the home after Bumby's death.
