"Alexandra Palace, or 'Ally Pally' as it is affectionately known, was built as an exhibition hall in 1873. However, it burnt down only a few days after its inauguration and was rebuilt in the following 2 years."

Not only is Alexandra Palace an extraordinary sight, the views from its hilltop position are also exceptional...

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

Little Fishes playgroup

St James Church
Little Fishes playgroup is a really nice group for all kids under 5s in Muswell Hill to start the week. The session is made up of free play for around the first hour, a craft activity, snacks and songs and story. The playgroup has all kinds of interesting and well looked after toys for babies and toddlers to keep them occupied and happy. The group welcomes people of all or no faith. Website

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.
