+15404636774, Rest Stop on Interstate 40, Lexington, Virginia, United States

This also doesn't accept incoming calls. But it's cool too. Just a simple Payphone in the back of a gas station. Probably hasn't been used in months. Thanks again to Newman for this.

Beaten but still working. Richmond Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States

This one is pretty messed up. It stands on a wall in the bad part of Philadelphia Pennsylvania. Vandalized, and without a number. However, it works perfectly fine. It's pretty cool. Thanks to Newman for this.

Unfortunately, it does not accept incoming calls. But at least it's existence is documented here on the net. Big thanks to our new contributor Newman. Hope to see more from you in time. If possible please let us know at least a street location for any payphone contributions.

+442076065183, Sherlock Holmes Tribute Phone Box, Outside St Bart's Hospital, Junction West 1PCO, Smithfield-Giltspur St.,London, EC1

Recently stumbled across this phone box, bedecked with tributes to Sherlock Holmes, outside St Bart's in Smithfield. In the last series of the BBC's Sherlock, our hero fell to his apparent death from the roof of the hospital. Although the final scene revealed that trickery was afoot, it hasn't stopped fans of the sleuth leaving personal messages at this latter-day Reichenbach.

Calling the payphone may well get you a Sherlock Holmes fan on the line, or simply a tourist wondering what it's all about.

+34968575536, Los Alcázares, Spain

This payphone is from "Los Alcázares", a town near "Mar Menor" (Spain).


In these days there is a nativity scene in on "la feria", one of the
shopping streets in town. The phone rings at a moderate level but is
clearly heard when passing nearby.

Location of the village:

Many thanks, Santiago Crespo
