You are in the centre of London, taking in all the fascinating sites on a fabulous walking tour. Then suddenly panic strikes. You need to spend a penny. What do you do, where do you go? How do you face the embarrassment of interrupting the guide to ask where the little girl's room is?
Not a problem. You're on the London Loo Tour, and have already been informed that the most luxurious ladies' loos in London can be found at the Weatherspoon pub in Knight's Templar. Phew for that. Thank goodness you didn't choose to go on the City Visitor Trail instead.
London Loo Tours was born out a university student's obsession with free public conveniences. It was not what she planned using her Master's degree for, but somehow that's what happened.
Amongst all the giggles, whispers, and blushing there is a lot more than just toilet humour to these tours (though that's definitely one element). Learn about the history of The Great Stink, find out who Thomas Crapper was, and discover where you can find the highest toilet in Europe.
There are three different tours that are currently scheduled up to the 29th April, and they last between one and a half to two hours. Tickets are £12 or £10 concessions, and you'll be privy to all the privies in the capital.
The Original Tour - Explore the history and politics of public toilets between Waterloo and the West End. There will be time for tea and cocktails along the way, as well as bathroom breaks.
The Bloomsbury Tour - This tour focusses on civil rights and equality. Your social class, gender, and race once determined which loos you could and could not use.
Porcelain Pub Prowl - a pub loo crawl, where you can enjoy a drink over topics you wouldn't usually discuss at the table.
