This Funzing Experience:

We put the Loo in Bloomsbury!

This tour travels from Euston Square to Holburn and plumbs the depths of the history of health and hygiene, investigating how the toilet as we know it evolved from scientific discovery and social convention.

Our journey takes us through University College London, where you will learn about the early sanitary reformers, past the British Museum, where you'll find out what public toilets have to do with women's rights, and into two pubs with fantastic facilities where we celebrate bathrooms at their best. And of course, along the way, you'll get our exc-loo-sive trademark tips on where to go!

Why? You may well ask. Because we think they are awfully interesting! Loo Tours are designed by and for adventurous spirits who want to see the world differently, who love history and off-the-beaten-track adventures and who care about important social issues. Come ready to be surprised by the depths of social and political history contained in the humble toilet, and bring your own stories to share!

Experience London as you have never seen it before!

Please note: In 2018 we will be raising our rates for the first time in 5 years to £15. Book before December 31 to get next year's tours at this year's prices!
