The BT Tower is a tall structure in the Fitzrovia neighborhood of London that supports antennas and satellite dishes for telecommunications, radio, and television. “BT” stands for British Telecom, and the tower features a “BT” logo near the top:

When we visited London in the summer of 2011, we stayed in a flat that was just a block away from the Tower.

We didn’t realize that would be the case when we reserved the flat, but it was a happy discovery, because we found that, no matter where we were in London, we could see the BT Tower, and we knew that was where “home” was. It was very comforting; we never felt completely lost, even in large, bustling London.

It’s a very distinctive and slightly futuristic looking structure, particularly compared with the multitude of more historic buildings that make up most of the London skyline:

And besides, having a tall, futuristic-looking structure to mark “home” is pretty much the norm for us.
