BT Tower, London

One of the most iconic buildings of 1960s London, the Post Office Tower as it was then (and widely still is) known was Britain’s tallest building when it opened in 1965. Although still in use as a communications facility, its microwave horns are now redundant but cannot be removed following the 177-metre high tower’s Grade II listing in 2003.

Sadly the tower has not been open to the public since 1981 and its famous revolving restaurant is now used only for BT corporate functions.
