The Original Tour (Waterloo to the West End)
This 1.5 hour walking tour is perfect for the immensely practical tourist with a sense of humour and an interest in hygiene. Along the way we explore the history and politics of public toilets. Plan for a few drinks (ample opportunity for everything from tea to cocktails) and prepare to share your own anecdotes about favourite loos.
The Bloomsbury Tour (Euston Square Station)
Toilets through the ages have been a battle ground of civil rights and sites of social exclusion. This tour places a greater emphasis on politics and how 'the smallest room' can shape how genders, classes, and races interact, and by enabling or denying access can include or exclude certain members of society: to impress or oppress.
Pocelain Pub Prowel
If you’re looking for a chance to get properly pissed this is not your event…. toilet worship will only happen in the most dignified manner. If you’re looking for a social evening out, a bit of history and stimulating conversation topics you wouldn’t normally discuss in public then join the loo-bar crawl… with locations specifically selected for their (usually quality) lavatorial features, and a few historic points of interest in between.
Locations vary from event to event.
Office Party? Birthday?
Arranging a Hen night or Stag do?
Looking for that unique employee bonding experience?
Got a group of out-of-town business men you need to impress?
