Since 1995 the palace has been a Grade II listed building. Designed to be ‘The People’s Palace’ and later nicknamed "Ally Pally" in 1936 it became the headquarters of the world's first regular public 'high definition' television service, operated by the BBC. The Alexandra Palace television station was located on the site and its iconic radio tower is still in use.
