Places to Visit in Leicestershire where the Toilets open

Bradgate Park

Whilst I appreciate that visiting places is not for everyone at the moment, I thought that a list of where you can visit that also have toilets open might be handy.

Social Distancing rules obviously still apply and I would say that using toilet facilities is very much at your own risk. Please practice good hygiene at all times!

I will endeavour to update this list regularly. Please let me know of you know of anywhere else.

Moira Furnace Museum and Country Park

From Saturday 6th June between 11am and 4pm, the museum shop will be open for take away refreshments. Contactless and card payments only. They will be opening the disabled toilet for people to use whilst the shop is open (11am-4pm). It will be a one in, one out system with sensible queuing expected. The toilet will be cleaned before opening and half way through the day. Moira Furnace are urging people to wash their hands and only use the toilet if desperate to keep queuing to a minimum.
Opening Hours:
Museum Shop 11am to 4pm
Car parks will be open from 9am to 5pm (Free)
