The British Telecom Tower (formerly known as the Post Office Tower and, before that the GPO Tower) is a landmark in Birmingham, and is also the tallest building in the city.

In 2003, the tower was painted an ultramarine blue to cover the existing light brown which had started to become darker with pollution. The balconies were painted to stand out from the tower in a dark shade of blue.

It has become one of the most important communication towers in the world.

The Birmingham and Fazeley Canal runs beneath it.
