The BT Tower is an iconic sight in London, but one I thought we'd only ever get to view from afar. How lucky we were then, to be invited to a special screening of the Minions Movie there, followed by a trip up in the super fast lift to the very top?!
Eldest girl assured me that she was scared of heights and there was no way she was going up.....
She was soon persuaded though, with talk of nail art, balloon models and face painting. We had some fabulous mother-daughter bonding time as the 34th floor revolved so we could see the sights (one revolution every 22 minutes, fact fans!).
The view from the top of the Tower is just stunning; London at its best. You can see the gorgeous St.Pancras station in my first pic and landmarks such as The London Eye, The Shard and The Gherkin in the second:
The Minions Movie is coming to the BT Store on 2nd November. Follow @BT_UK for updates!
Disclosure: we were treated to this viewing and entertainment but all opinions are honest and our own; we were not asked to write this post.
