Depending where you are travelling on the London Underground, it is likely not as easy as you would hope finding a toilet.

While some ends of the Tube are pretty well-served when it comes to being able to make a quick pit-stop, others are likely to leave you cross-legged for some time before a toilet can be located.

For anyone having to be particularly wary when travelling, Transport for London (TfL) does have a handy online map showing where each of its facilities can be found.

But where are they, and which areas have the most and least toilets?

Where are the toilets on the Tube?

The first thing that jumps out from TfL’s map is how many more toilets are based towards the outer ends of Tube lines, with far fewer available around central London.

District, Central and Northern line toilets

The District line, for example, is pretty-well stocked between Upminster and Barking, though is then devoid of options other than disabled toilets at Whitechapel until Cannon Street.

The Central line similarly has plenty of toilets along its northern route until Stratford, after which point it becomes fairly spotty, with just three options until White City in west London.

The Northern line is perhaps the most sparse however, with a particular lack of toilets south of the River Thames.

A TfL spokesperson said the reason outer London stations are more likely to have toilets is due to them typically being further apart than stations in the centre of the city.

Elizabeth line toilets

The new Elizabeth line is, unsurprisingly, particularly well-served, with all east (Stratford to Shenfield) and west (Acton main line to Reading) stations having customer toilets which can be used free of charge.

‘More toilets planned,’ says TfL

Mark Evers, chief customer officer at TfL, said: “We are in the early stages of work to improve and expand toilet facilities on our network, which we recognise are important for customer care and particularly for disabled customers.

“This will include an audit of existing facilities including the location of toilets, quality of the facilities provided and opening hours. The study will also help us identify opportunities for introducing more toilets.”
