Information

Standing 138 m tall, St John’s Beacon was designed by Birmingham architects James A Roberts Associates and was originally intended as a ventilation shaft for the shopping centre below. It was constructed from 1965 to 1969 and in the 1970s it featured the revolving Tower Restaurant together with an observation deck. The restaurant closed in 1978 and briefly re-opened in the 1980s. The tower was renovated in 1999 and re-opened in 2000 as Radio City 96.7, leading to the structure’s alternative local name of the Radio City Tower. In 2011 a viewing gallery was opened to the public.
