It seems a bit odd that public toilets are a top tourist attraction so we couldn't resist having a look. I was disappointed as the ladies are plain white toilets and hand basins.

These are a beautiful wee gem of a place, never thought i'd want to visit a public toilet for it's beauty but this certainly has it, decor is kept stunningly immaculate for its period although i was advised that this is only for the ladies section, the gents apparently is a lot more modern.

Much more than just functional. Truly a work of art whilst having a very practical purpose are well. Modern planners could learn a lot from the design and functionality of the toilets!!

Sneaked into the men's toilets when my husband gave me the "all clear". They are beautiful, if you like that sort of thing, which I do. The urinals are beautiful and well maintained. The pipework is glorious!
