This has been an eye catching art installation in Kingston for nearly 30 years. And in all that time it has not occurred to BT to make the upstanding phone box operational. Few people use phone boxes now, but visitors would love the chance to...More

What a surprise to find this row of drunken red phone boxes leaning on each other for support, a fun installation. It’s on the road opposite the train station to great effect. Found a terrific antique shop right by them too! Happy days!

Didn't know what to make of this when I first saw it. I assumed it was a holding area for unused phone boxes. Seems Its always been a part of kingston. Shame ilooks cluttered and messy where it is

Have seen the tumbling phone boxes on tv. Unfortunately there had been road works in the vicinity which slightly spoilt them. Possibly need a freshen up with a coat of paint. A bit of fun for a novel photo!

This iconic sculpture is unmissable, but is now looking much more tired than it did when I last saw it. Many of the phone boxes are in a poor state of repair, and litter has not been cleared from within and beneath the boxes. A...More

An enjoyable piece of 'art' always makes me smile when I look at it and has become a Kingston landmark. Iconic phone boxes from a bygone age of communication nowadays. Presently building works are taking place in the local area so good photos on this...More
