Have you ever stopped to think about a simple question and found the answer to be much more complex than you ever could have imagined? And that that answer leads to yet more questions?
This was precisely Rachel Erickson's situation when she moved to London. She was a drama student, a tourist, and a person who needed to do what we all must and use a toilet. But the toilet door was barred by a 30p entry charge. Avoiding this, she began to learn the workarounds and secret free toilets in London.
One day she started to wonder about the politics of paying to pee. Where does the money go? Why is it free in some places and not others? Should it be a human right? New avenues opened up and she found herself plunged into a whole new world. She became the Loo Lady and toilets became her life.
Today she's going to take you on a journey into the surprisingly dynamic world of the British Public Toilet. This tour takes you past some of London's most iconic views with a new twist.
