As a specialist Block Management Company we are operating in Crystal Palace.
History of Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace is located in south London, and is approximately 7 miles south-east of Charing Cross. It is named after the Crystal Palace Exhibition building, designed by Sir Joseph Paxton. It was originally built in Hyde Park, to house the 100,000 exhibits of fine arts, crafts and industrial innovations, of the Great Exhibition of 1851. This can be viewed as a monument to the Victorian era, and can be attributed to the hard work of Queen Victoria's husband, Prince Albert, and Henry Cole, an English civil servant and inventor. The Great Exhibition was a huge success, and attracted six million visitors, the equivalent of one third of the British population. This large glass and cast iron structure, was dismantled in Autumn 1851, and transported from Hyde Park, and rebuilt at the top of Penge Peak near Sydenham Hill. The building was completed, in 1854.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace Park is a good place for any visitor. There are giant dinosaur statues, which tell how the story of science is built and changes over time. The skatepark is designed to meet riders of all ages and abilties, with an 11 metre curved concrete band, with a wide range of rideable terrains.
The Crystal Palace Park maze is one of the largest in the country, with a good diameter, of 160 ft, so it is easy for any visitor to get lost. It has towering hedgerows and a confounding network of pathways. The maze is free, and open to all.
