You pay 40pence to get in here to use the toilets but they are worth a visit. Spotlessly clean and a lovely lady who takes your money on entering who is very helpful and friendly.

We were staying on our boat in the harbour and so this was our bathroom for the weekend. The showers were really well kept and the toilets were clean with friendly attendants. However the men's toilets really are stunning and worth a visit.

Yes it's only 40p per person and you can pee, but expected more, Gents was empty so popped in for a peek as this was the truly Victorian Experience, as in use the smell was bad, popped into the ladies 1880 meets 1980, not a...
