Alexandra Palace is a Grade II listed music, sport and entertainment venue in London. It is located between Muswell Hillo and Wood Green in North London. It was originally opened in 1873 but a fire destroyed it two weeks after its opening. It was rebuilt and in 1936 it hosted the world's first regular public television service run by the BBC. Alexandra Palace continued to be used by the BBC for many years and its radio and television mast is still in use. The Great Hall and West Hall currently host exhibitions, music concerts and conferences, that are operated by the Charitable trust that owns the building and park. Alexandra Palace hosts a pub, an ice ring and a palm court. There was a commercial development plan to transform the venue into a mixed leisure complex, to include a hotel, an ice‐skating rink, cinema, ten‐pin bowling alley and exhibition centre, however it was blocked by the High Court in 2007. In 2013, Alexandra Park was declared a Local nature reserve and it is also a site of Nature Conservation, Grade 1. The venue offers a wide range of activities to cater for children and families, these include Go Ape, which is an award‐winning forest base company running a number of outdoors activities. A boating lake and lakeside café will offer a fun activity and refreshments to Alexandra Palace’s visitors. The venue offers ice‐skating during the winter period and a year‐round skate park.
