Alexandra Palace

Willmott Dixon Contact

We are bringing the Victorian-era East Wing back to its full splendour and creating a world tourist attraction.

 Our restoration of the iconic Alexandra Palace is lifting the lid on a goldmine of Victorian-era architecture that hasn’t been seen for decades.

The £17 million theatre renovation include an auditorium capacity of up to 1,300 people – a reduction from its original 2,500 seated capacity – and see the balcony reinstated. The designs show the theatre revived as a flexible space that can be used either in its original proscenium staging, or as an in-the-round or thrust configuration, with a flat floor so it can be used for other functions. UK's largest Building on the 'at risk register'.

On your visit you will  see how we are “Bringing the east side back to life”.

The tour will consist of a short safety briefing, introduction to our works, site tour of the Theatre & East Court work areas and then back to the Site Offices for some Q&A.

On the tour you will see the Theatre which has laid untouched and dormant for over 80 years  being brought back to life for the next generation of people to enjoy. Also on the tour you will get to see the Grand East Court being restored.

Along the tour you will get to see some of the interesting artefacts we have found during the enabling works.
