Crystal Palace Transmitter



Crystal Palace Transmitter

The 3rd tallest structure in the capital & London's Eiffel Tower

Location: off Crystal Palace Parade

Description: The 'Crystal Palace transmitting station' is a broadcasting and telecommunications site in the Crystal Palace area of the London Borough of Bromley.

Its tower is the third-tallest structure in London. The station is best known as the main television transmitter for the London area. It is owned and operated by Arqiva.

The station was constructed in the mid-1950s among the ruins of the Crystal Palace. The Aquarium on which it is mostly built was partially destroyed in 1941 during the demolition of the Palace's north water tower.

John Logie Baird's earlier transmitter and TV studios were a separate development at the other end of the Palace and perished with it in 1936.

Its new 219-metre (719 ft)tower was the tallest structure in London until the construction of One Canada Square at Canary Wharf in 1991. Despite its size, it has been largely overlooked as a London landmark due to its location and simplicity.

It has been nicknamed London's Eiffel Tower.
