While tickets to visit most of the favoured venues for Open House London 2010 were snapped up within just a few minutes, tickets for the highly coveted chance to visit the top of the BT Tower are being allocated by a digital name out of the hand draw.
Sadly, the venue is only open for a few hours (Sun 19th Sept: 12noon-5.30pm) so the chance of getting a ticket may be quite slim. Worth trying though.
Applications will be accepted from today and closes Mon 13 Sept 5pm.
You are allowed to apply for two tickets per booking.
Give full names, addresses, email, tel of each person in the application. Applications without full info won’t be considered.
Successful applicants will notified in writing and this will be the ticket for entry – so the only way you’ll know if you got tickets is if a letter arrives in the post – which is relying on the postal service to be unusually efficient in their efforts.
I would have thought an email to all the applications confirming winning/losing status would have been sensible, especially as the booking closes just a few days before the visits takes place. Oh well.

If you get a ticket, you will also need a Photo ID: valid passport (any nationality) valid EU identity card, driving licence (photo card). Strictly no admittance without ticket and photo ID.
