Overview

This stalwart tower keeps London talking and is seen as both a monstrous blot on the skyline and a wonder of modern engineering. Whatever your opinion, with the majority of the city's mobile phone and internet usage controlled from this modern communications hub, formerly the Post Office Tower, it's essential for London life. The 165-meter (540-feet) skyscraper with its huge, mushroom-shaped satellite dishes was the country's tallest building until the mundane NatWest tower eclipsed it in 1981 and can be viewed from far and wide. Unfortunately, following a bomb attack in 1971, the tower and its revolving penthouse restaurant are no longer open to the public. But its still worth taking a peek at if you're in the area - let's face it, you could hardly miss it.
