Well worth a look around,

I've visited Rothesay on many occasions and didnt know they existed until today. They are beautifully maintained and shouln't be missed.

The Victorians certainly knew how to spend a penny in style!! You need to visit these toilets to appreciate the quality of the tiling and figments.

This is a much overlooked piece of Victorian history. The marble and glass fittings are a wonder of a bygone age.

My wife and I recently visited the Victorian Toilets - very interesting and well preserved - worth a visit from a historical point of view.

30p to get in and so worth it. To see the Victorian marble urinals , tiles and the old fashioned see through water cisterns. These toilets are still in use. They are beautiful. The lady who takes your money was very nice too. Plus you can buy a postcard of the place.

An immaculately restored example of a Gents Toilet. In full working order, as well! Fake marble urinal stalls, mosaic floors, Twyfords flushing cisterns with windows and Minton? tiling. 30p to get in, ladies can view them too.....and you can take photographs! Fantastic!

A quite unique visit for 30p. It's a quick one but interesting to see how public toilets used to be. I hope there's funding to ensure they remain preserved.
