Discovering London through its bathrooms is an interesting and unusual way to learn about the city’s history, culture, and politics. This 1.5-hour walking tour provides a fresh perspective on London as you see some of its most recognisable landmarks while learning about its history and present. This trip delivers an amazing experience that will leave you admiring the city’s ever-changing nature, from Europe’s oldest public toilet to a secret underground Victorian sewer.
This guided visit takes place on Sundays and Thursdays at 3pm and places are snapped up, try to book well in advance if you can. The tickets can be found here.
Discover what it means to “spend a penny” at the Great Exhibition of 1851 and then use London’s most patriotic restroom at the same time for the most authentically British experience you’ve ever had. The tour comes to a close in the Cellar Door Cocktail bar, where visitors are welcome to remain and have a drink in a space that was formerly used as a public toilet for guys (complete with sophisticated and unexpected amenities all its own!).
If you find this peculiar, you should realise that public services are fascinating in their own right and conceal a great many mysteries. Loo Tours was founded both by and for those with a sense of adventure who have a desire to explore the world in a different light, who have a passion for history and off-the-beaten-path experiences, and who are concerned about significant societal concerns. You are going to be astounded by the amount of social and political history that is packed in the quaint toilet, and you are going to pick up a lot of information that you are not going to forget anytime soon.
