First time at Alley Pally to see Chase and Status with a group of friends. Organised queues outside. Festival-esque reception hall with bars and food stalls. Sooooo many ladies toilets so hardly any queuing. Sold out gig yet plenty of space to bounce around the edges. Not 5 stars purely because of drinks prices, but then all venues overcharge on... More

I used to live in Crouch End and later in Muswell Hill. Alexandra Palace is a building worth visiting not just because of its history but what it has to offer nowerdays.History is that the first ever television broadcast was from Alexadra Palace. Its build on a hill and you can see it from far away. Nowerdays there are plenty... More

We had a fabulous time at Panic at the Disco, I was very impressed with the facility's and FREE parking is a brilliant bonus, trick is to turn up early! We parked there from about 10am and took the bus/tube to Camden Market and spent most of the day there, transport is sooo easy in London just make sure you... More

The People's Palace is being restored to its former usefulness and glory. We attended a Textile Arts Exhibition that was huge & amazing, featuring a tapestry commissioned by HBO to illustrate a battle scene from "Game of Thrones". Wonderful. The view of the London skyline from the terrace is so beautiful.

We came here to see chase and status live. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. There is a cloakroom for a large event like this which I was told there wasn't by someone on TripAdvisor. But guessing it's only open for concerts. There were food stands and bars inside. I recommend the cocktail bar not to pricy and... More

Gigged everywhere. Somehow had never been to Ally Pally. Loved the festival food / picnic tables affair in the foyer. Loved the black space and stage contrast with the ceilings and windows of the main room. Didn't love waiting to be served a beer for 25 mins (gave up) and going the whole concert without any liquid. More bar /... More

Came to Alexandra Palace fireworks display on Friday 4 November. Fantastic evening on whole. Plenty of good viewing spots. Nice to attend a display which still has a bonfire as so many don't these days. Only let down was Day of the Dead parade - hardly anything in it and a route needs to be condoned off for it to...

Organisation could have been better but P!ATD was great. Seemed to be only two portaloos but luckily some of us were able to use some indoor toilets which were OK. My friend and I went to queue 6 hrs before the concert, ended up 4ish rows from front of the stage so was kind of worth it. Staff wrote a... More

Venue facilities excellent and not a rip off. Car park organisation however total crap. It took us an hour to get out of the car park as there were no stewards at the main exit. I had to ring the venue from my car to get them to inredirect us out via the one way exit. Problem is that no... More
