Property description

These historic listed "K6" red phone box or “Jubilee” kiosks, commemorating the Silver Jubilee of the coronation of King George V. These boxes are 8'3" high and 3ft square. They were originally designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, who also designed Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral, Battersea Power Station and Bankside Power Station now Tate Modern. Historic England have listed to preserve these iconic red kiosks, and many have transformed them to coffee shops, libraries, museums, bakeries, and defibrillators. In Cheltenham, 10 red phone boxes have been transformed into miniature art galleries, showcasing the work of local artists.

The kiosks have mains electricity - ready to trade. There is no service charge or ground rent to pay.

Location

Leicester is a city and unitary authority area in the East Midlands that lies on the River Soar and close to the eastern end of the National Forest. It is to the north-east of Birmingham and Coventry, south of Nottingham, and west of Peterborough. The kiosks are located immediately outside Leicester railway station on London Road.
