"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."

There's a peaceful spot along the New River, which winds unassumingly through the residential streets to Finsbury Park.

Daniel Burrell

The Mackenzie Garden in Finsbury Park is a peaceful spot that I like to visit when I have the time.

Vikki Broad

Pretty Victorian terraces within Wood Green's conservation areas give it a family atmosphere...
