Attraction Information

The iconic Alexandra Palace has everything you and the kids need for a fun family day out. There’s lots of history to discover (including the birthplace of TV) and plenty of activities to keep you going, plus one of the best panoramic views of London!

History lovers will have a blast at Alexandra Palace. The stunning Victorian building, built in 1873, has survived 2 World Wars and 2 massive fires; it definitely has plenty of stories to tell...Not to mention the hidden gem - Ally Pally’s forgotten theatre! In 2018, after 80 years of oblivion, it reopened and now has plenty of shows on offer.

As we said earlier, there’s lots to keep the whole family active, as well. Alexandra Palace is surrounded by 196 acres of outdoor space, featuring an ice rink, a skate park, a pitch & putt course, and a boating lake. Your little explorers will also have the chance to  go climbing, or take a segway ride. There’s no danger of being bored, that’s for sure!
