At Your Convenience: Dive into the history of London's toilets on an audio tour


Select Option


We take toilets (and most other sanitary fixtures) for granted... but there is nothing pre-ordained or natural about them. They reflect deeply ingrained cultural norms.

This self-guided audio walking tour through Bloomsbury dives into the history of toilets and how we came to appreciate them, from the Great Stink of 1858 and London's cholera outbreaks to modern development work... and of course tales of toilet greats, like the eponymous Thomas Crapper.

Music by Paul Freeman; Guest voices: Barbara Penner, Tse-Hui Teh, Catalina Pollak, Lucinda Hawksley, Rudi Grace.
