GETTING HERE AND GETTING HOME

By rail - Ally Pally has its own train station fittingly called Alexandra Palace Station. It is located at the Wood Green entrance to the Park. A regular train service runs direct from Moorgate, through Highbury & Islington or from Kings Cross, changing at Finsbury Park.

By tube - Wood Green is the nearest underground station on the Piccadilly Line (journey time is 20 minutes from Piccadilly Circus). Exit Wood Green Station and go to bus stop A to pick up the W3 bus up the hill to Alexandra Palace. The closest underground station to the Palace with step-free access is Finsbury Park.

By bus - The W3 bus runs from Finsbury Park and Tottenham to Alexandra Palace Ice Rink or Alexandra Palace Palm Court.

Check out tfl.gov.uk for the best way to get home.

By car - The Paddocks car park, on the west side of the Palace is the best spot to park in. A donation of £3 per vehicle is suggested to help cover the costs of looking after the Palace and Park. Alexandra Palace is run by a charity, so this donation is hugely appreciated.


Everyone at the PDC wishes a safe and enjoyable trip to all fans attending this year's World Championship - game on!
