British Telecom Tower, London

Author: UK122

The BT Tower is a communications tower located in Fitzrovia, London, owned by BT Group. It has been

previously known as the Post Office Tower, the London Telecom Tower and the British Telecom Tower.

The main structure is 177 metres (581 ft) high, with a further section of aerial rigging bringing

the total height to 191 metres (627 ft). It should not be confused with the BT Centre (the global

headquarters of BT). Its Post Office code was YTOW.

Upon completion it overtook the Millbank Tower (which had been constructed faster) to once again

become the tallest building in both London and the United Kingdom, titles it held until 1980, when

it in turn was overtaken by the NatWest Tower.
