Are you out and about, walking, or shopping, only to realise that the public toilets are closed?

A new website, Lockdown Loo, has been created to show public toilets which haven’t been closed as a result of COVID-19.

Made by brothers, Charles and Thomas Riley, the website has more than 3,000 public toilets and will help you locate the nearest open toilets.

The data displayed on the website is gathered through user submissions and local knowledge.

If you know of toilets which are open – whether they are at pubs, stations, cafes or in a public park – please SUBMIT them. We are also monitoring council updates and speaking to businesses.
