Just been confirmed that the BT Tower will open again this September for the London Open House weekend, and tickets might be just a smidgen easier to get this time as they have “over double” the capacity that was available last year.

I presume that means it will be open longer hours rather than they will squash more people into the same few hours on a Sunday that it was open in 2010.


Tickets will again be by ballot (presumably not organised by the Olympics idiots) with the ballot opening on the 15th August.

Also, if you want to buy the guide to the whole weekend, then there is still a 10% discount on the usual £6.50 price fore a few more weeks. I usually buy it as it gives me a chance to see what goodies need booking before the website goes live.

The guides will be sent out on Friday 5th August, which traditionally means the ticketing website will go live on Monday 8th August.

The Open House Weekend itself is on the 17 & 18 September 2011.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but 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 its 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 your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

  1. Let’s not hope that those Olympic idiots didn’t organize this ballot.. The tower will be loaded with bigwigs all day.
