"That Lockhart's something, isn't he? Awfully brave chap. Have you read his books? I'd have died of fear if I'd been cornered in a telephone box by a werewolf, but he stayed cool and — zap — just fantastic."
Justin Finch-Fletchley regarding one of Gilderoy Lockhart's supposed accomplishments[src]

A telephone box, also known as a telephone booth, is a small enclosure containing a public telephone.


During the 1985–1986 school year, a telephone box was in the Muggle Studies Classroom.[1]

By August 1992, Arthur Weasley owned a red telephone box, and placed it in his field of non magical junk.[2]

Gilderoy Lockhart alleged that he defeated a werewolf, possibly the Wagga Wagga Werewolf, after having been cornered by it in a telephone booth.[3]

Frank Bryce had intended on using a telephone booth in Little Hangleton to phone the local police upon overhearing Voldemort's plans to murder Harry Potter in August of 1994, but he was discovered by Nagini before he could leave the Riddle House.[4]
