  • Amazing views, great and friendly staff. Easy to get to with only a mile to walk from the nearest tube station. The fact you can be so high up in the sky and the building you are on revolves is seriously impressive. If you get the chance to go then do, you won't regret it.
  • What a venue to throw a party. We were asked by our client to throw a summer of 69 themed party at the BT tower and it was very exciting. The venue is of course very unique and the fact it does a full 360 revolution whilst you are dancing away is a USP to say the least. The venue staff were perfect. Everyone of them were amazing and we could not of wanted it any better. We cannot wait to be back here planning events for our clients.
