Alexandra Palace is a historic entertainment venue, situated in Alexandra Park, London. It was opened in 1873, but due to a destructive fire, it was again rebuilt in 1875. It is nicknamed as "Ally Pally" and was designed as a public center for education, recreational sports events, and entertainment. The original studios are now used for the exhibition of the old television equipment, located in the south-east wing with their producers' galleries. The structure of Alexandra Palace covers around 7.5 acres. The Great Hall and West Hall are mainly used for exhibitions, conferences and music concerts. It was operated by the trading arm of the charitable trust which owns the building and park. Apart from all these, it also has a pub, ice rink, and palm court.
