Provision of Payphone Service
We are licensed to provide a public telephone service. All
public payphones will allow you free calls to emergency services on
112 or 999, and access to the
operator. In most other cases all calls are chargeable to the
caller and payment is accepted in Sterling. Our payphones accept
the following coins: 10p, 20p, 50p, £1 and £2. Payment by phonecard
is not accepted neither are credit or debit cards.

that allow access 24 hours a day, every day of the year. The
exceptions are those payphones installed in public buildings that
have restricted opening hours.

guidelines are available for download on our website. Please see
