BT Tower

The Post Office Tower - now known as the BT Tower - opened in the Fitzrovia area of central London in 1965.

The tower's main structure was 177 metres high. A further section of aerial rigging brought the total height to 191m.

It was the tallest building in the UK until London's NatWest Tower opened in 1980.
