"Telecom Tower" BT Tower Tip by sjvessey
BT Tower, London: 6 reviews and 7 photos
Originally the Post Office Tower (in the days before privatisation of British Telecom), this distinctive structure used to be the tallest building in London. The top part used to be a restaurant, and rotates (when it's switched on), going round once every 20 minutes, and providing a fairly spectacular view of London's grime-obscured skyline. Of course it was all closed to the general public years ago when people became worried that the IRA would find it a tempting place to leave a bomb. You can still go up here but it's VIPs by invitation only, I'm afraid. Have I been up there? Well, yes... I have to admit I have. And they rotated the restaurant especially for me...
Address: Surprisingly near Bolsover Street, W1
Directions: Nearest Tube, Goodge Station. At Cleveland St.
