Retro revolving restaurants, London BT Tower

I dont usually feature video on this blog but I saw this gorgeous documentary on YouTube the other day and just had to post it!

It’ so interesting to see a documentary about such a strange but awesome phenomenon from the 60s, the obsession with restaurants high up, and also revolving! I work close to BT tower in London, and would love to go back to that time and eat a lovely dinner up there! Amazing!

I also love how the window cleaners just casually step out of the tower into their cradle so nonchalantly and in a cardie, haha!

Take a look – I hope you enjoy it as much as I did 🙂

P.S – I wouldn’t normally link to the Mail for personal reasons, but there’s a good article here from 2009which includes a lot of detail about the tower’s heyday which includes this awesome Cocktail menu…
