Map shows you where public toilets are open during lockdown

With lockdown restrictions easing, days out are now a possibility, but you might have discovered that lots of public toilets are closed.

Some have had to close because of reduced staff, some are attached to buildings that are still shut and some are unable to keep up with extra cleaning.

But it means that people are being caught short when out and about.

To help, someone has launched Lockdown Loo – a map showing toilets that are open across the UK. It includes public toilets and those at pubs, restaurants, cafes and stations.

You can use the map to find toilets or if you know of one that isn’t on there, you can ask for it to be added.

The website says: ‘This website is only as useful as the information we are supplied. 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.’

Each location has details of where it is when it is open and for some, how often it is being cleaned.

So next time you are heading out for a few hours and are worried about needing the loo, you can have a search for toilets around where you’re going just in case.

It’s not the only handy map someone has created for things that have suddenly become more important since lockdown was introduced.

There’s also a map showing where you can get a pint to takeaway, though if you’re going to use it for a socially distanced afternoon with friends, make sure you know where the nearest open loo is too.

You can browse the map on the Lockdown Loo website.
