The legendary North London venue of Alexandra Palace, affectionately known as Ally Pally, lives in nearly 200 acres of rich, enticing parkland, which boasts a pub, of course, a restaurant, boating lake and pitch-and-putt golf course. The park first opened in 1863 and was a Victorian hotspot with the Frying Pan racecourse a popular local haunt until the 1970s. The Palace opened in 1873 and hosted the first-ever television broadcast, but now it's having a long-awaited facelift. All ready to take on the role of terminus on the Crossrail 2 line. Alexandra Palace station opened in 1859 and interestingly predates the famous concert venue. The warm-yellow structure is one of the most architecturally sound stations in London and harks back to quieter times before the days of Congestion Charges and Travel Zones. The station connects to a modern footbridge that crosses the tracks over to Bedford Road, which leads on to the park.
