Alexandra Palace Ice Rink (Haringey Ice Rink)

Alexandra Palace Ice Rink has an unlikely location. The ice arena can be found in a Victorian-style palace, set in almost 200 acres of beautiful parkland. Alexandra Palace is a multi-purpose venue based in north London, just east of Muswell Hill.

The ice rink (sometimes known as Haringey Ice Rink) is home to a number of ice hockey teams, including the Haringey Huskies of the NIHL 2 South league. It is just one of 41 ice rinks in the UK that are home to competitive ice hockey teams.
