Potty talk

Manchester Confidential is on a mission to name and shame some of the worst toilets in town, but we need your help…

Published on July 20th 2006.


From the glistening facilities of a 5* hotel, to a dirty unisex hole in the ground in a Belgrade nightclub, to Duchamp’s ‘Fountain’ in the Tate Modern, I reckon I’ve lived the dream and seen a fair few toilets in my lifetime.

Apparently, we spend three years of our life in the loo. That’s a reasonable amount of time. So why, oh why, do so many of our toilets not come up to scratch? Do we live in a third world country? Not last time I checked. So why is it that some of the toilets in Manchester’s night spots wouldn’t seem out of place in the wilds of Kenya?

When you gotta go, you really do gotta go. But unfortunately, many of Manchester’s public toilets make you not wanna go.

Manchester Confidential is on a mission to name and shame some of the worst toilets in town. Public toilets, that is. We don’t want to hear about your mate Dave’s dirty bathroom.

We can’t do it alone though. We need your help. We want you to tell us about your toilet experiences (not too much detail please) – which are the worst in Manchester, and if you like, which are the best.

Some toilet facts to get you in the mood…

  • The average person visits the toilet 2500 times a year - about 6-8 times a day.
  • The first time there were separate male and female toilets were at a Pasisian party in 1739.
  • The first toilet cubicle in a public washroom is the least likely to be used: it is also the cleanest.
  • World Toilet Day takes place on 19 November each year.
  • We use an average of 57 sheets of toilet paper a day!
