Alexandra PalaceAfter a shaky start - destroyed by fire 16 days after 'The People's Palace' first opened in 1873 - Alexandra Palace re-opened again two years later becoming the place from where the BBC beamed its first broadcast in 1935. The palace title maybe a little misleading - it's charm being more shabby chic than regal. Still, it's a great venue for the regular rock concerts, raves and exhibitions staged, with two massive indoor spaces. And, perched above the city, it boasts beautiful surroundings and wonderful views over London. From the first warm days of spring until the annual fireworks display in November, outside is the place to appreciate Ally Pally taking in the nearby boating lake, children's playground and parkland. A London institution.
