Highest point in 1980s


Does anyone recall any tourist location being the renown place to overlook London in the 1980s? Obviously there are some great places to ride up nowadays but I don't recall being able to climb anything high enough (legally) back then.

Thanks!

What about the BT Tower?


Lived in London since 2003, it's alright I suppose.

Ah yes, good point. But it was closed in 1980 after a bombing.

Not bad Mogwai, not bad. I was hoping for a piece of architecture but really that hill does have great view.

Thanks!

2020, true but I thought that didn't open till the late 80s. It counts though. Thanks.

Mogwai, I didn't know tourists could go up in the NatWest. I suppose there is restaurant...
