Why do you find Alexandra Park a great place to live?


"Leafy and peaceful, with the magnificent palace and park at its heart, but just minutes from the shopping options of Muswell Hill and Wood Green, or the plentiful bars and cafes of Crouch End. Enjoy ice skating in the palace, a cake at the Grove Café, or just take in the best view in London from the atmospheric vantage point of the world's first television broadcast."

Challenge Playgroup

St James Church
The Challenge Playgroup runs on Friday mornings in St. James' Church Hall, Muswell Hill. The happy noises of children playing are like those of hundreds of playgroups around the country. But this playgroup is special. It is run for children with additional needs; for their siblings, parents, carers and grandparents too. Parents are welcome without their child too, if they attend nursery or school on that day.In a quiet haven next door to the designated play area is a sanctuary of fresh flowers, bean bags-and absolute quiet-parents can sit in here and read a newspaper or magazine, retreat into their own thoughts or even have a massage most weeks, whilst a CRB checked volunteer plays with their child next door. The playgroup is completely free of charge. Website
  1. About Alexandra Park

    Alexandra Park is an 80 hectare, Green Flag Award winning landscaped park in the Borough of Haringey in north London. Alexandra Park is split between hilly terrain and flat ground. It is adjacent to Hornsey, Muswell Hill and Wood Green. It is dominated by Alexandra Palace. From 1936 to 1981, the BBC transmitted TV progammes from a tall mast built onto one of the towers of the palace. In 1980, most of the palace was gutted by a huge fire. The building has since been restored and is now a conference and exhibition centre. The vast, tree-lined sloping hill has wide views over London. On a clear day, the Crystal Palace Transmitter in the London Borough of Bromley is visible.
