Guided Tours

Take an expert guided tour around the site of the Crystal Palace in the beautiful Grade II listed park.
We run Guided Tours on the first Sunday of every month during the summer.
It is a wonderful atmosphere learning all about the great Crystal Palace whilst walking by the remaining terrace walls and amongst the iconic sphinxes, which themselves have the feeling of the ruins of a grand medieval castle.

Come and find out how the Crystal Palace came to the small hamlet of Penge. Hear the stories of how the world famous event - the fountain displays, fireworks, and the great musical extravaganzas - thrilled and delighted millions of people on the very ground where they actually happened. Finally, learn how the site was destroyed in an epic night’s fire.
