The London Telecom Tower :: Visitors' Map of London :: A-Z Maps

The London Telecom Tower

This famous London landmark opened as the 'Post Office Tower' in 1965, and at 620 ft., it remained the tallest building in London until the NatWest Tower in 1981. It was the first purpose-built tower to transmit high frequency radio waves, designed to cater for the UK's growing telecommunications requirements.

Until its closure in 1980, the 34th floor was occupied by the 'Top of the Tower' restaurant, built to rotate 360+ every 22 minutes. Public viewing galleries were closed in 1971 following a bomb blast.
