London's Parks and Green Spaces

Alexandra Park

Viewpoint

Description

Alexandra Park is split between hilly terrain and flat ground. It is dominated by Alexandra Palace. From 1936 to 1981, the BBC transmitted TV programmes from a tall mast here. The building is now a conference/exhibition centre. The vast, tree-lined sloping hill has wide views over London. On a clear day, the Crystal Palace Transmitter on the far south-east side of London is visible. Free.
