  • Event Overview
    • Open House – Explore the secret basement

      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.

      For the first time Alexandra Palace is hosting 60 minute tours of the basement offering visitors the unique opportunity to see the bread ovens, a bunk bed and workshop machinery remaining from the First World War when the Palace was used as an internment camp.
