"When phoning home firstly make..." London Local Custom Tip by Linky_Pinky

London Local Customs: 717 reviews and 883 photos


When phoning home firstly make sure you have the international code, if you do not many of the phone boxes have a code chart. Next buy a phone card and go to a phone that takes phone cards lift the receiver and insert the card then dial your number. Be warned when travelling with children many of the phone boxes are full of sexually explicit cards put there by prostitutes. Lastly remember to remove your phone card at the end of your call and to take all your belongings with you, if you don?t they will not be there when you return.
