The director of 2010’s Alice in Wonderland film appeared in great spirits as he enjoyed a casual stroll in the historic city with a mystery brunette and a cute dog.

Tim’s companion showed off her quirky sense of style in a sleeveless black top, paired with a plaid skirt, black socks and sneakers.

She styled her locks into a sleek plait, concealed her gaze behind trendy sunglasses, and at times, was engrossed on her phone.
