Is it really? I thought that "00" was the international dialling prefix, and since no country code begins with "00" I wouldn't expect "0000" to connect to anything at all. I can't find any references to phone numbers starting with "0000" anywhere outside the site you linked to - the published number for the Premier Inn Guildford is 0871 527 8482.


6197 men and 2194 women competed in the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul.

More evidence of the chaotic nature of our road numbering system comes from the A6201 between the Hemsworth bypass and Barnsdale Bar in Yorkshire. It opened in 2008-9 as the A6021, with the highway authorities seemingly unaware that a road with this number already existed in Rotherham. Apparently the number was planned as A6201 all along, but a persistent typo in many of the plans meant that signs were made with the wrong number, which also appeared on maps. The error has now been corrected and patches have been placed on signs.
