Alexandra Palace – Fire and Frolics

The story of the private park saved for local people is told on this walk. You will learn how the lovely rose garden hides a sinister past, and how the Grove took on its present shape.

Railways made the park accessible to Londoners, especially those who enjoyed a flutter on the horses! Why the trams affected the entrance to the Palace and how transport links remain vital today is also covered. But most importantly of all, you can enjoy the lovely view, which first attracted the BBC to the Palace.

This tour takes you around the important historic sites in the Park and it’s a chance to enjoy the spectacular Victorian building from the outside.
