It'll Be Free To Wee At These London Stations From April

By Holly Brockwell on at

Following the announcement that wees will be free at Liverpool Lime Street, Manchester Piccadilly and Leeds stations, Network Rail has a message for the capital: "Londoners, urine."

From April Fool's Day (slightly odd choice) 2019, a number one or two will cost you zero at:

  • Clapham Junction
  • Euston
  • King's Cross
  • Liverpool Street
  • Waterloo (appropriately enough)

That doesn't mean it's free everywhere, though: as Londonist points out, you'll still have to cough up to spend a penny at stations like Bank, Green Park, Piccadilly Circus and Westminster.

Still, this is good news for everyone except Network Rail themselves, who'll lose almost £5m from the programme to scrap bog charges. We'll expect to see those charges recouped with one-ply toilet paper.*

*Which everyone knows is a false economy because you just use three times as much.
