London's Parks and Green Spaces
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.
