Alexandra Palace opened in May 1873 as a public centre of recreation, education and entertainment and has had many different uses throughout its 150-year history. Tours will visit the basements and will focus on WW1, when the Palace was used as an internment camp. Join us to find out lots of interesting facts about the Palace’s hidden areas and learn about the different uses the Palace has had over the years. The meeting point for this event is on the South Terrace of the Palace.
Please note there is no wheelchair access for these tours. Parts of the basement route are uneven and therefore sturdy footwear is required. This event is suitable for ages 12+ only, ages 12-16 must be accompanied by an adult.
We strongly advise to use public transport where possible as there will be limited parking available on this day.

Alexandra Palace is a charity, run for the benefit of everyone. Our Park, Palace and spectacular events have been enriching lives since 1863, but the coronavirus pandemic has hit us hard. To be blunt, we are looking at a £1m shortfall this year and the same again next year. We know this time has been hard on many people but, if you can afford it, your support will help us get through this crisis.
