Victoria toilets now accessible to all

Toilet facilities claimed to be the busiest in London are now open to everyone, following a complete transformation.

Network Rail has completed a major refurbishment of the toilets at London Victoria station, utilising the expertise of accessible toilet company, Closomat, to ensure the new facilities are truly accessible.

As a result, the terminus now has a Changing Places 12m2 assisted accessible toilet, including peninsular WC, height adjustable wash basin, height adjustable adult-sized changing bench, and full room cover ceiling track hoist. The Changing Places is alongside the station’s other accessible toilets, at street level on the ‘Sussex’ side of the terminal.

It is the latest step in addressing the need to improve rail accessibility, highlighted in a report which indicated only a third of stations have even a standard wheelchair-accessible toilet and even fewer have a more inclusive Changing Places facility.
