Following the completion of the East Wing Restoration Project, the East Court is reopening as a spectacular new space for you to relax and unwind.

Open every day from 10:00 until late, you will be able to grab a coffee or enjoy a range of food trucks offering freshly made sandwiches and cakes as well as hot dogs, nachos and homemade chilli dishes. On Monday-Friday, you can also indulge in a spot of Afternoon Tea underneath our Glass Atrium. For more information, click here.

When the Palace opened, the East Court was dubbed a cabinet of curiosities, displaying incredible items from around the world. It will once again be a space to explore and learn, giving you new ways to interact with the Palace and our unique story. In 2019, it will be home to the new Creative Learning Zone as well as hosting exhibitions, talks and events.

The East Court will be home to a new installation that will tell the story of the Palace’s role in development of leisure and entertainment in Britain. From exhibitions, music hall and theatre through to the advent of television and the development of the live music industry – Alexandra Palace has played a pivotal role and continues to be at the forefront of innovation.
