The Grade II-listed building stands within the 196 acres of Alexandra Park, nestled between the trendy suburb of Muswell Hill and the bustling district of Wood Green. It opened to the public for the first time in 1875, and soon 120,000 people had been welcomed through the gates. However, tragedy stuck after just 16 days when the building caught fire and was destroyed. Rebuilding work was completed two years later and the Palace went on to claim an important place in television history in 1936, when the very first public transmissions were made from the BBC's studios on the site.
Alexandra Palace survived another fire in 1980 and today the complex attracts more than one million Londoners and tourists every year, who all come to enjoy the eclectic range of activities and events on offer.
