2 DAYS OF CRAFTING INSPIRATION
Alexandra Palace in North London is such a beautiful and iconic building (that we spent many of our teenage years visiting) that when the opportunity arose for us to expand Stamperama and bring it here, allowing us to share our love and passion for crafting with you, it was just something we had to do.
We are crafters but also a manufacturer and an exhibitor so it is very important for us that everyone has a great experience at this event. We want you to learn new things and try new products and have a great time.
PARKING & SHUTTLES
There are 1,200 parking spaces in the grounds, currently offered free of charge. These are all on a first come first served basis and cannot be booked in advance. Parking is split into six parking areas, with easy access to different areas of the park and its amenities with shuttle buses running from The Paddocks car parks.
There are disabled access parking spaces specifically for blue badge holders. There are dedicated accessible bays in the Grove Car park (a short walk up a slight hill) and the East Car Park. There is a drop off point outside the Palm Court Entrance via the west slip road where staff will assist with directions. Spaces are available on a strictly first come, first served basis.

KEEP OUR PARK GREEN & CLEAN
The Park is home to 694 different types of plants, animal and fungi, including 212 different types of insects and 26 types of arachnids! Big and small, all of these species play a role in balancing our delicate ecosystem. While many plants and animals found in the park are common to London, 38 species in Alexandra Park are classed as rare or protected by legislation.
The trees and green spaces mean that the Park acts as a vital green lung for North London. It provides a space with better air quality for people to relax or exercise. Studies have shown that a green view can reduce stress in just three minutes, and few places offer a better view than the Alexandra Park. Happier people means happier communities.
The Park and Palace is maintained and conserved by Alexandra Park and Palace Charitable Trust. They work year-round, with volunteers, Friends of the Park and partners, to ensure the Park provides access and enjoyment for local residents and international tourists alike.
