London 2012 venue: Alexandra Palace
Alexandra Palace
Fencing

Alexandra Palace is a scenic addition to London's venue list for the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics.

The first live BBC television pictures were broadcast from 'Ally Pally' in 1936 and the reconstructed 1873 exhibition centre in Wood Green has a history of staging boxing matches.

International Olympic Committee members are believed to be keen to see some events held away from the core Olympic zone.

And Alexandra Palace - currently home to an indoor skating rink - has high ceilings ideally suited to indoor sports.
