The Crystal Palace was the location for the Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Nations. It was built in Hyde Park, London in 1851.

The Fifth Doctor wanted to take Nyssa and Tegan Jovanka to there as "a treat" in the wake of Adric's death but instead ended up on the tarmac of Heathrow Airport in 1982. (TV: Time-Flight)

The Eighth Doctor took his companions Charlotte Pollard and C'rizz to the Great Exhibition in 1851, shortly after their departure from the Divergent Universe. While there, Charley met and befriended the elderly Duke of Wellington. (AUDIO: Other Lives) Charley had previously visited the Crystal Palace as a child. (AUDIO: The Next Life)

The palace was later located in Sydenham. (COMIC: The Crystal Throne, AUDIO: A Spoonful of Mayhem)

The Tenth Doctor tried to take Heather McCrimmon to the Crystal Palace in 1854. (COMIC: The Crystal Palace)

On 30 November 1936, the Crystal Palace was destroyed in a large fire. (COMIC: The Eagle of the Reich, PROSE: Tomorrow's Fish and Chips) By one account, this was done by a hatched phoenix. The Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams came to the Palace at this time, although they had intended to visit it in 1851, and met up with Winston Churchill. (COMIC: The Eagle of the Reich) Another account indicated that the fire was started by the Tenth Doctor and Heather McCrimmon in order to defeat Victumas and the Dominion Sisterhood. (COMIC: The Crystal Palace)

Ibrahim Hadmani travelled back in time to witness the destruction of the Crystal Palace. (PROSE: Tomorrow's Fish and Chips)
