Standing proud on a North London hill, Alexandra Palace is one of the country’s best known venues. As well as hosting sell-out concerts and gigs, ‘Ally Pally’ has a year-round roster of food festivals, collectors’ fairs, film screenings, sports and fitness events, international expos and more. It also has an ice rink, art gallery, cafe and restaurant, skate park and boating lake. Alexandra Park is a lovely place to wander around, too. With so much to get involved with, make sure you book one of our Alexandra Palace hotels in advance so you can unwind after an action-packed day or late night.
The sprawling Alexandra Palace, which was originally opened in 1863, is still a hugely popular exhibition and concert venue. Each year the Masters Snooker tournament is staged in the building, with tourists also able to attend a diverse programme of music and art shows in its Great and West halls. Additionally the Alexandra Palace displays historic television equipment, giving an insight into its past as a recording studio.
Guests staying at one of Premier Inn's well-located hotels can also explore the beautiful grounds surrounding the building. The hilly section of Alexandra Park provide excellent views of the city, with a weekly farmers market also an enticing stop for tourists.
