Alternately take the Victoria line to Finsbury Park and change there, but it's a slightly slower service. Check train times at www.
The closest station to the venue is Alexandra Palace , which is an overground British Rail station ie not on a Tube line.
From your hotel, take the Victoria Line northbound from Oxford Circus. If you're travelling on a weekend or late in the evening, the trains to Alexandra Palace start from Kings Cross not Moorgate , so change at Finsbury Park and go up the stairs to the overground section.
But if you do get an overground train starting from Moorgate, changing at Highbury and Islington is much easier, as the Victoria and overground lines are close together and you don't have the walk.
At Finsbury Park there are various northbound trains you can take - just make sure that the LED boards say they are stopping at Ally Pally, as some fast services do not.
When you get off at Alexandra Palace station, the actual Palace is a 15 minute walk up the hill - it's signposted. Check the last train times on your return as late-night services are less frequent and stop in the early hours.
The Victoria Line, though, is one of the ones that runs 24hrs at weekends. The Palace is a beautiful building, but it is a little off the beaten track as far as London venues go.
Just an extra note that it is quite an uphill walk to Ally Pally. If you have any mobility concerns, there is a bus that runs up the hill that might benefit you.
Personally I would get the tube to Finsbury Park Victoria or Piccadilly lines then the W3 bus which has a stop right by the venue which will save you quite an uphill walk.
You can't go wrong btw; the W3 starts at Finsbury Park so you can't go in the wrong direction and stops are announced. W3 from Finsbury Park station would be my route.
Have you looked at this? A combination of tube and bus might be the easiest way to get there but you will find it difficult to get on a bus after a concert with hundreds of other people trying to do the same at the same time.
So if you don't mind a downhill walk it will be quicker to make your way to Alexandra Palace 15 mins or Wood Green 25 mins stations.
I've never had a problem getting on the first train arriving at Alexandra Palace after a concert, even with the crowds.
If you get the W3 from Finsbury Park which I would , don't be fooled by the fact that you come out in to a bus station.
You need to walk through that, turn left to walk under the railway bridge and there's a second bus station Wells Terrace on the left. The W3 leaves from here.
If you want to get something to eat beforehand, you could get the tube to Finsbury Park then walk along Stroud Green high street past Wells Terrace all the way to Crouch Hill where there are a lot of small restaurants.
This is on the W3 route so you can hop on afterwards. Thank you all for your helpful suggestions. Do you know when the last trains depart the Ally Pally station?
I worry that the show will end later than the trains. Also, thinking about reserving afternoon tea for when we arrive. Would be too late, as not really afternoon.
During the s and 50s the palace also housed a public roller-skating rink. The theatre was greatly altered in the early s, with the general manager, W.
MacQueen-Pope , spending the war reparation money on refurbishing the auditorium. He abandoned the understage machinery that produced the effects necessary in Victorian melodrama; some of the machinery is preserved, and there is a project to restore some of it to working order.
After these changes, the theatre was leased by Archie Pitt , then husband of Gracie Fields , who appeared in the theatre.
Fields also drew an audience of 5, people to the hall for a charity event. After the BBC leased the eastern part of the palace the theatre was only used for props storage space.
In June , the first performances for about 70 years took place in the theatre, first in its foyer then in July in the theatre itself.
Although conditions were far from ideal, the audience was able to see the potential of this very large space — originally seating 3,, it cannot currently be licensed for more than a couple of hundred.
It is intended that the theatre will one day reopen, but much costly restoration will be required first.
It will never again reach a seating capacity of 3, not least because one balcony was removed in the early part of the 20th century as a fire precaution, when films started to be shown there , but it does seem likely that a capacity of more than 1, may one day be achieved.
A major season of the theatre company Complicite was planned for but the project, which would have included some repair and access work, was cancelled due to higher-than-anticipated costs.
Plans by the current trustees, Haringey Council, to replace all the charitable uses by commercial ones by a commercial lease of the entire building, including a casino, encountered considerable public and legal opposition, and on 5 October , in the High Court, Mr.
Justice Sullivan granted an application by Jacob O'Callaghan, a London resident, to quash the Charity Commission's order authorising a year lease of the entire building to Firoka Ltd.
A masterplan for the future of the site was drawn up in , comprising six 'big ideas' to restore and redevelop the palace. In the Heritage Lottery Fund awarded a Round 1 pass to develop the proposals, creating a new entrance in the restored East Court, re-establishing the theatre as a flexible performance space and re-opening the BBC Studios as a visitor attraction.
There is currently controversy regarding plans to demolish the brick infills in the colonnade on the south-east face of the building, which the BBC constructed after to form their television studios within.
In it was announced that the Theatre would open for a BBC Proms performance on 1 September  before officially reopening to the public on 1 December Keith Armstrong, a local photographer , has been recording the restoration at monthly intervals over the past three years.
Some of his images are to be published in the form of a photographic journal on December 3, - Restoration - Alexandra Palace - The East Wing. Alexandra Palace has hosted a number of significant events over the course of its history.

The 14 Hour Technicolor Dream , organised by the International Times , demonstrated the importance of the quickly developing Underground scene.
Although venues such as the UFO Club were hosting counter-cultural bands, this was certainly the largest indoor event at the time. John Lennon attended, and Yoko Ono who was soon to become Lennon's new romantic partner presented her performance work "Cut Piece".
Alexandra Palace posed as a disused church.
