Alexandra Palace is a great place for your family to have fun and discover the history of the Park and Palace together. You can visit 365 days a year, and always find something for families to do!

Our family programme includes sessions throughout the week that enhance the special bond through creative play between parents/guardians and their children (ages 12 and under). Families can experience a range of art forms and activities from arts and crafts, to dancing, drumming and song! We offer an ever-changing programme that includes hands-on activities developed in collaboration with teachers, artists, performers, tour guides, and curators.

Half Term Creative Activities

Our October Half Term Alexandra Palaces’ Creativity Camps went online with daily opportunities for young people to learn new skills, hone old ones and get creative!

Each day of the week (Monday 26th – Friday 30th October) we released a film, activity or info pack from the artists who took part over the summer, covering a range of urban art forms including street art, street fashion and design, spoken word and street dance.

Little Inventors

16 and under

Take the Ally Pally Wildlife challenge!

Alexandra Palace needs your wonderful ideas to help us celebrate our beautiful park and the hundreds of weird and wonderful species that make their homes here.

We want you to pick your favourite wildlife and create inventions that will help them here in Ally Pally Park. To do so visit the Little Inventors website which has all the relevant information, resources and instructions. There are prizes on offer for the best ideas, entries close 26 February 2021.

But just before you get started, here’s CBBC’s Naomi Wilkinson with a bit more information. Thanks Naomi!

Good luck!
