About the London Model Engineering Exhibition
Since 1863, Alexandra Palace in north London’s Muswell Hill district has been an entertainment and sports venue for many iconic celebrities and major events. The Grateful Dead performed there in 1974. The PDC World Darts Championship has been at the palace since 2007. One can go ice skating, relax in the 196-acre park or have a great meal at any of the food outlets. And now, the palace’s Great Hall is the venue of the London Model Engineering Exhibition, one of the leading model engineering shows in the UK.
This show runs the gamut from old-style model steam locomotives and traction engines to the most up to date model displays of trucks, boats, aeroplanes, helicopters and robots
Nearly 50 model clubs and over 50 specialty suppliers will be there to inspire you and support your hobby and passion for model engineering. Over 2000 different exhibits covering the entire modelling spectrum will be displayed including the Model Active Zone with 'hands-on' activities directed at younger modellers and special exhibitions with theme-based displays. Stand Z will have a stunning array of models based on the James Bond films.

Somewhere to Stay in Greater London
Hardy winter Campers and Caravaner will be able to find campsites in and around the urban area of the Alexandra Palace, but most people making a weekend of it are most likely going to stay at a hotel or a B&B. The number of hotels near and around London are too numerous to detail here but lodging can quickly be booked online.
Getting To Great Hall
If you choose to drive to the Alexandra Palace from the A406, exit south onto the B550 (Colney Hatch Lane) to the roundabout. The second exit is the A504 (Muswell Hill) and then a left onto Alexandra Palace Way. From the A1 turn north onto the B550 (south end of Muswell Hill) and an immediate right on Wood Lane to Queenswood Road to Woodvale Lane. At the Woodvale Lawn Tennis Club make a right turn onto Cranly Gardens, then a left at Park Road that will lead you to Alexandra Palace Way. There is a bus service with the W3 at bus stop A at the Wood Green underground station on the Piccadilly Line. Another option is to arrive by train and depart at the Alexandra Palace Station.
Other Things To Do Around Wood Green
The London area offers everything a major metropolitan city can offer as far as art, museums, and entertainment is concerned. Again, the choices for other things to do around the Palace are too numerous to detail. If you don’t mind driving a little, be sure to visit Hever Castle, about 40 miles southeast of London. You can tour Anne Boleyn's childhood and have a pint at The King Henry VIII, a historic English pub in Hever, a location where a pub has existed since 1597 and the namesake to whom Ms. Boleyn literally lost her head.
Parking is free with disabled parking available on a first-come-first-served basis. Leave your smokes in the car as the Great Hall venue is a non-smoking facility. Only guide or service dogs are allowed inside the palace, but dog-walkers can take 'Rover' for a stroll around the 196-acre park. If you are a 'Dead Head' (A devoted follower of the Grateful Dead), be sure to go 'Truckin’' at the Tamiya Truckin Arena, part of the exhibition.
