Was in B&Q Warehouse recently, and noticed they stock extremely large
(66cm x 33cm) white ceramic wall tiles. These appeal to me because
they'd require very little grouting for a given area of wall.
However, the catch is that they were selling them at about £50 per box
of 8 - more than £6 a tile!
In my experience B&Q put a quite obscene markup on a lot of their
stuff, so I wondered if someone else has come across these tiles from
a cheaper source?
I don't know that they will be much cheaper though. ISTR they were
pretty damned expensive. However they do quite a range of wall tiles and
some were as cheap as 80p (ish) for a 30x30 white tile.
For the price of those B&Q tiles you could have some very nice looking
limestone tiles from Tops.

which would be called `A Live Celebrity Gets Eaten by a Shark'."
Do be aware that not many tile cutters can cut a tile 66 cm long. Although
the diamond wet saw type can technically cut an infinite length. B&Q, Wickes
etc £39.95. A manual score and snap type will be expensive
You will need something like a Rubi TS-60 which can be seen on my web site
This might put you off such a large tile
good tiles come in at between £15 and £100 a square meter and you would
get 4 1/2 of those to a square meter, which sounds like 27 squid a
Nothing special in that price. I've seen far more expenisve than that.
