Public toilets

More public toilets have been opening across Edinburgh from 1 June - see opening times below.

To keep you safe, we provide enhanced cleaning and enable physical distancing. This needs more space and staff, so we are only able to open some of the toilets.

If you develop Covid-19 symptoms after using a public toilet check test and protect.
