This tour is perfect for the immensely practical tourist with a sense of humour and an interest in hygiene.
My own interest in toilets fountained from a very practical mission to avoid the 30p (and upwards!) fee that many public toilets charge. What started as something of a joke has blossomed into a research project as I have discovered the fascinating history and social importance of these often overlooked pieces of architecture.
This walking tour covers the area from Waterloo to the City of London
Along the way you will get:
• Tips and tricks for locating free public loos in London
• The history of the toilet from pre-Roman to present
• The surprisingly intense politics of the public toilet
• Gossip and trivia
• Jokes and bad puns
• Rest stops for drinks (The rout offers ample opportunity for everything from tea to cocktails)

Born and raised American but thoroughly British at heart. I have lived in London for about a year, and love the city as much as ever. As a life-long theatre and history nerd it is probably about the closest thing to heaven. I received my Master's Degree from the recently re-branded *Royal* Central School of Speech and Drama. Outside of my theatre work, I'm a proud member of Cecil Sharp Morris (If you are not familiar with morris dancing you should be... it's the most quintessentially English thing there is... aside from tea, perhaps.) My current pet project is learning everything I can about toilets. So far this has lead to my loo tours, a trip to Indonesia for the World Toilet Summit, membership with the British Toilet Association, and lots of new friendships. You cannot imagine how much fascinating information there is on the subject! I could talk about me all day... but I usually think it's more interesting to talk about you! Or London, of course!
