Something very exciting is coming to London thanks to BT and Google! The BT Tower is going to be open to the public for the first time since 1980! To celebrate it's 50th Birthday BT and Google are giving a selected group of Google Maps fans the chance to go all the way to the top.
If you've ever been to London then you will have seen the BT Tower, it's one of the tallest buildings in the city and is a landmark as well as a major communications hub. It's as tall as 20 double decker buses stacked on top of each other and at it's widest part it is 3m!
It's an incredibly iconic part of the London skyline as well as being an essential part of the UK's communications network.
A new campaign called Secret Spaces is giving the most engaged users in the Google network the chance to gain access to their favourite places on Google Maps. A select team of the most active and engaged Google Maps users will be given the chance to travel to the top of the BT Tower as it celebrates its 50th anniversary.
The event is taking place tomorrow and will include:
-a talk all about the history of the BT Tower
-a 'School Of Life' talk about London to teach the attendees more about the city
-a photography course with Andy Fallon.
You can learn more about the campaign and tomorrow's event using the #BTTowerTrip tag and you can also find out what's happening from the @BT_UK account! I will be updating my social media through the night and probably sharing lots of pictures of the amazing view!
