Alexandra Palace was built to be North London's answer to Crystal Palace, and had the great advantage of not being made of, well, glass. It was gutted in a fire only 16 days after opening, but the outside walls still stood and it was soon reconstructed; when the Crystal Palace burned down in 1936, there was nothing left. The Ally Pally was the original home of BBC Television, and still hosts a major radio/TV mast. Since the mid-50s, it's been an entertainment venue (with occasional periods of closure) and has hosted gigs by numerous bands, as well as sporting competitions and other events.

The nearest Tube is Wood Green (PIccadilly) and the nearest mainline rail is Alexandra Palace. The Palace is served by the W3 bus route.
