BT ArtBox: A new obsession begins…

I didn’t mean to start collecting BT ArtBoxes… honest! After the Big Egg Hunt devoured the entire month of March I thought, “enough is enough”. I saw one of the BT ArtBoxes near the Tower of London when they were promoting the event and, although it was pretty cool, I thought I would be able to resist…

Then I saw the same one again at Covent Garden (it seems there are six painted like this)…

I was pretty convinced I wasn’t going to bother trying to collect them all, until tonight after work when I made the mistake of walking up Baker Street, and I found THIS…

A little further up Baker Street, I also found this:

The hunt has begun…

    Oh dear, looking at the link it seems there are quite a few of these for you to track down. The Big Ben one looks pretty interesting. Best of luck with the hunt – Tally Ho!

    I’ve definatly jumped on the BT ArtBox obsession train. Like you I wasn’t happy when I saw that there were a few at heathrow…but noticed today that only box still being linked to Heathrow is a ‘Jubilee’ box..yay…. I definatly I hope I get to see them all. Happy Hunting!

      Yay! I’m glad it’s just a Jubilee box at Heathrow. I have the printable map from their website now and am ready to begin my hunt properly! 😉

        Me too…especially now they’re all in there right places…was disappointed that i couldn’t get any pictures of ‘money box’ thought.

    Just wondering how your hunt has been going…..seen you’ve posted quite a few pictures. I’ve managed to find most…just 6 more to go…..now if they would only stay in one place i might be able to find them….

      I got to just under 70 boxes (I think) and gave up due to time restrictions. I also managed to do my foot in while I was hiking about London – oops! I haven’t got around to uploading my photos yet but will post some soon! Well done on your hunt – sounds like you did really well! 🙂
