In 1862, a decade after the Crystal Palace Exhibition, a further exhibition was planned to promote arts, sciences and manufacturing. Unfortunately, the building built for the exhibition was disliked and eventually dismantled, but over the next 50 years other exhibition halls such as Alexandra Palace, Olympia and Earls Court were built.
