Phoneboxes are full of words so it was fantastic to find the magic of storytelling in a red box sitting in the charming little Yorkshire town of Settle. AND our 5-year daughter loved it.

Excellent little attraction based inside an old red phone box. Features a traditional dial up phone that you interact with to hear cool stories.
