Kingston’s famous falling over phone boxes have been wrapped in Cath Kidston polka dots for Christmas.

Located on Old London Road, home to the town’s antiques emporium and quirky independent shops, the boxes, officially named Out of Order by artist David Mach, are one of Kingston’s best known landmarks and have never before been given the Cath Kidston treatment.

“We are pulling out all the stops this Christmas to ensure the town centre is filled with festive sparkle,” says James Kennedy at Kingstonfirst.

As well as the redecorated phone boxes, there is a Santa’s grotto with live reindeers on Old London Road and a white Christmas market in the town’s Memorial Gardens.
