Please note as of 23 June 2023, five of the six public toilets are currently out of order.
Please note Islington is in the early states of replacing all of our automated public toilets. Due to the age of these facilities and high levels of misuse these toilets go in and out of service – we apologise for any inconvenience caused.
- Highbury Fields public toilet is still open and usable but this could change at any time due to high levels of misuse.
- The pop-up urinal in Cowcross Street is back in use
- The Toilets4London app gives details of toilets in the community that are available for people to use when out and about.
- It lists more than 50 toilets in Islington, including council buildings like the Town Hall, 222 Upper Street, and libraries.
- We’re encouraging more businesses and organisations to join Toilets4London, and help make a real difference to their local community.
