Alexandra Palace

I visited the Knit and Stitch Show at Alexandra Palace and found the Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef had migrated there. It is a huge show with suppliers showing all sorts of materials. I wanted to see Alexandra Palace close up having passed it so many times on the train.  It was built in 1873 and despite being burned down twice, is London’s only surviving example of a Victorian People’s Palace where in 1936 the world’s first television transmission took place.
