If you haven’t entered the ballot for tickets to go to the top of the BT Tower for Open House London, then you should be sending that email off sharpish.

Applications to be sent to [email protected].

Ballot closes Mon 13th Sept 5pm. Max 2 tickets per booking. Give full names, addresses, email, telephone of all attendees in application.


There is another way to get into that desirable tower.

You could win a place on an Open House architectural tour in a vintage Routemaster bus, kicking off with a tour of BT Tower, and taking in other Open House buildings, with commentary by Royal College of Art tutor and bus driver Joe Kerr.

Places are limited so to be in with a chance to win a place on this half day tour on the Sunday afternoon, answer this: In what year was the Routemaster launched?

Frustratingly, there seems to be two dates that might qualify as the answer, depending on how specific you are being – erk!

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.
