It didn’t open to the public as rumoured back in 2009, but that icon of the swinging sixties, the BT Tower, will re-open as a restaurant this year.
But it isn’t as simple as turning up and expecting a table in the revolving restaurant. You need to get lucky in a ballot.
The Tower, originally the Post Office Tower, opened in 1965 and to celebrate the 50 years of its sight on the London skyline, the revolving restaurant is opening once more, serving lunch and dinner on the 34th floor. That hasn’t been the case for decades.
With that in mind, demand is expected to be sky high when the doors open for the seven-course dinner or four-course lunch on 25th July. So you’ll need to get your name in the ballot (for a party of up to four), which opens today.
Ballot one will be open from 22nd June until 29th June
Ballot two will be open from 30th June until 7th July
