I walked along the Parkland Walk from Cranley Gardens to the Ally Pally on a Sunday afternoon in late July. The views from the old rail bed on the Parkland Walk are panoramic in spots but nothing like the vista one enjoys from the terraces of the Ally Pally itself. Lots of families enjoying themselves on the terraces. A splendid... More

Firstly, I have attended 3 gigs at Alexandra Palace and am NEVER disappointed. I can not stress enough how amazing this venue is. I saw Enter Shikari in February and it was fully the best day of my life. The food village as you walk in is wonderful. Easy access to toilets/cloakrooms/food/drink/space to chill/ bars. It is honestly the full... More

Going to Alexandra palace was a random idea when the bus stopped in front of it, but it turned out to be an awesome place. The day we have been there was a fast food festival which give an even better feeling to place. I would recommend to everyone. Easy to reach beautiful building and landscape

What a view of London. I didn't go in, I was walking in a park & down a lane & there it was. I have some affiliation. I had an Uncle worked for the BBC & was there when the first broadcast was made so it had a kindred delight for me.

We went to Ally pally on a lovely sunny day. Sadly the fun fair isn't on at the moment but still lots to do either walking around, picnic, paddle boats and pedalo's on the pond. Great view over London too.

Alexandra Palace or "Ally Pally" as it is affectionately known, is a great location for spending the day. The gardens in front of the palace are rambling and closer to the palace itself, are awesome views of London. I will definitely be coming back in a couple of weekends time for the final opening for summer of the craft beer... More

Take the car to the top and you can experience some wonderful views over the City and West End. Plenty to do in Ally Pally as well if you want, such as Ice Skating for at least part of the year, but the views alone make a trip worthwhile.

I used to live in the area, moved to the South West of England for 38 years, thought I would share this place with my Darling partner, she was amased by the views, we decided to have some food, the prices were reasonable, and the food good, to sit outside eating with a view of one of the Worlds most...

The Summer Festival was brilliant. 3 stages of really high quality musicians, craft beer, cider, cocktails, DJ until 10pm. Had a great day out, shown by planning to leave by 7pm and staying until the end. Only comment, except the craft beer/cider bar on the terrace, the other 2 were incredibly small / short staffed and took an absolute age... More
