Accessible toilets in London

Many restaurants, cafes, pubs, shopping areas, hotels, museums, attractions and stations in London have accessible toilets. If you're not a customer of the business, it's up to the service provider whether they'll let you use the toilet.

Many toilets are accessible through the National Key Scheme (NKS), also known as a Radar key. The principle behind the NKS is that if local authorities and other organisations decide to lock toilets in order to prevent misuse, they should use a standard lock.

There are more than 1,000 Radar key toilets in Greater London. You can find an accessible toilet near you by searching the Great British Public Toilet Map, and filtering for "accessible" or "Radar key".

The Changing Places website lists toilets for people who need changing beds, which aren't always provided in standard accessible toilets.

Accessible toilets at London stations

Most mainline trains have accessible toilets on board. You can find the disability pages for each train operator on the National Rail website.

Accessible toilets can be found in most mainline rail stations and some Tube stations in London.

Transport for London has a comprehensive map that shows which stations have toilets and what facilities are available at each one. Ask for a map at any Underground station or download the map in advance. 

Community Toilet Scheme

The City of London’s Community Toilet Scheme (CTS) encourages shops, restaurants and bars to give the public free access to their toilets during trading hours. Find a map of participating businesses on the City of London website.
