    A fine tribute to a by gone era. Built as 'the' entertainment venue of its time, the Ally Pally still has charm and uses in the present day, despite the challenges of age and fires. Still in use for c...  more »

  • I love ally pally as it's very close to home. They offer ice skating, do lots of gigs and food and beers festivals outside. Amazing view of London, far superior to primrose hill. The pub isn't the best, but nice for a drink or so.
  • Alexandra Palace is not just my place of work but a place I skate at in my free time. Tidy rink with a beautiful old structure with an amazing view as you walk outside. Staff are friendly and we will give you appropriate advice with a smile. The cafeteria serves good food and can be fast at times. Long sessions with good ice but sometimes contacting reception can take a while.
  • Fantastic views, fantastic ice rink. It does get busy but great that you can book online. Classy lovely place, literally my favourite place in the world. My only issue was crowd control at the firework festival, huge crowds and queues to get food, and a bottleneck to get into the food area.
  • Came here for the Great British Tattoo Show. The show itself was pretty good. The venue was very old and dated and I liked it. It has character and charm like many old buildings of this type. View looking out over London equally impressive.
  • After visiting Street life festival. We have decided to take our kids to the play ground next to the lake. My daughter who is 19 month old was playing in the green little car made from plywood. As she was turning her hand steeped and she has CUT HER SELF ON THE FACE! We were helped by the parks medical team. Who ware very nice and wanted to help. They have attempted to glue the wound but without success. We have taken her to hospital where she had to be fully sadeted and operated on. PLEASE TAKE CARE OF YOUR LITTLE ONES. THIS PARK IS NOT SAFE.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
