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.
*Please note unfortunately there is no wheelchair access for these tours.
Get here early and soak up the atmosphere of our Festival Village – featuring a line-up of the finest names in London street food and an eclectic bill of bands and DJs. Start your gig the right way.

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.
