Public Toilets

Public Toilets

Public toilets are OPEN at Allhallows (bus station).
The Allhallows public toilet has two attendants on the entrances to the toilets to manage strict social distancing, operating a “one in, one out” system.

Opening times for Allhallows are: Monday to Sunday: 10am to 5pm.

No other council toilets are open. Toilets at the Harpur/Howard Centres are NOT open. Cafes and restaurants that allow customers to use facilities under the community toilet scheme, are not open for “eating and drinking in” and so their toilets are unlikely to be available.
