London's Vantage Points - Alexander Palace



Today I have climbed to the top of one of the highest points in London, Alexandra Palace it has probably the widest panaromic view available in London. Affectionately known to Londoners as "Ally Pally", it has a history dating back to Victorian times and has burnt down twice. However, given the levels of pollution the view is normally obscured, like this.

There is a fairly widely known, but fascinaing bit of trivia that I'll leave for tomorrow. Another image from the top is on My Other Stuff.

Alexandra Palace is indeed great almost hidden gem, its a shame as most London residents know about it, but have never been to it
