  • Quite the most disappointing pub food I have had for a long time. A very sad chicken burger, dry and unappetising. Soggy Steak and mushroom pie without the mushrooms. Heaven help tourists if they thin...  more »

  • Easier if you book online. Penguins recommended for kids especially if it's their 1st time. Be prepared to hate it at first but you'll soon be sliding along with varying levels of ease. We now want to go back again. Toilets are clean. Lockers available but you don't get your money back with these. Cafe is nice with veggie options too. Staff on ice will help your children and you with skating if you ask them. Polite friendly staff.
  • Very nice park with ample parking and lots to do. It's a great place to take the dogs for a walk or have a picnic with the family. The palace itself has an ice rink and there are other attractions like Go ape, farmer's market, botanical garden, boating rentals, etc. just to name a few.
  • Great place for family, friends. I go jogging here time to time and I love it. It's open and spacious and have fantastic views of Canary wharf. We have fun trying to spot London landmarks from here. They have a large ice rink, I've seen all ages go. They also have kids place at the back with a large pond/lake you can go boat riding. Be warned in summer queue for boat ride can be max 45 minutes. Two car parks so driving is easily accessible.
  • Alexandra Palace is known as ‘the people’s palace’, I am assuming it’s because so many events are held there. Very different from the usual square box modern exhibition space because of the beautiful Victorian architecture, palm tree entrance hall, and park setting. The perfect location for the Country Living Spring Fair that I visited. Sadly the weather was more artic than spring like so I couldn’t enjoy the park. Look out for events including concert or bring a picnic on a warm day.
  • Great venue, good sound system and staff. Needs more people to scan tickets on entry to try stream line it more, stood outside for an hour even after doors waiting to get in. They have free buses from the venue back to the station, or £1.00 up the hill to the venue which is good as the walk takes about 30 minutes. Make sure you bring a £1 coin for it. Lots of food and drink on offer, as well as a bar. They have lots of toilets that are all well maintained and large enough to eliminate most queues. There is also a car park which is easy to get to at the bottom of the hill and is a short walk up to the venue.
