Toilet finders

I'm noticing that I'm needing to be aware of where toilets are as I go about my life. I'd not really thought about it until now, but I suppose I'm just clocking their locations in my head and estimating how long it would take me to get there and the best route should I have a need to go.

I happened to spot this website on twitter the other day, and that was the genesis of this post.

This site indicates that it is predominantly focussed on London (given that there are more local authorities there that are making their toilet data available for this kind of thing), but even so many of the toilets near my part of Bristol are also shown, so it suggests it is an evolving site, and I think this should be encouraged - you can comment on this by e-mailing them

I know that there is also the Radar key for disabled toilets, and this has a website too:

Naturally, some of this information is available as an app, so you can search for these on your phone/tablet.
And, the Radar one:

And herein opens up the door to find apps which have toilets shown for other parts of the world (and an interesting collection of toilet related games.....)
