Okay, I'll have a look on Google Maps to see how far it is. Thank you :)

Just a seven minute walk, definitely closer than McDonalds, which is the only place I could think of where we could just walk in and use the loos! We could probably get something to eat at the museum, too, thinking about it :tup

I was going to say the ones in Kensington Gardens :que
You go across the road in front of the Albert Hall, towards the Albert Memorial, then turn right diagonally across the park and they're hiding amongst all the greenery a few minutes walk away.

I was shocked to re-read you post and read that you said they were closed?

They're still in the bottom left hand corner of this map here (you have to scroll it)

If those are the Mount Gate toilets then yes, those are the ones I read have been closed. Was really disappointed as they'd have been ideally situated!

That would be a real nuisance.
They should update their webmap then :think

Thanks for all the info! I've queued at the RAH for gigs before and not been permitted to use their loos while queueing. I emailed them last week though, and this time we will be allowed to use the loos near door 12. Sorted :)

Excellent Pippy, pole position spot and utube fame :tup
Glad to hear you had a great time, the venue looks stunning. How did you while away the hours in the queue?

I do love the Royal Albert Hall, saw Muse there in 2008.

Queueing with friends makes the time pass quickly and we took it in turns to go and sit in the cafe upstairs. There's always a great sense of camaraderie in queues for gigs, I love the atmosphere! :tup

I've never fancied queuing, my friend queues for the Next sale and it makes me shudder lol But can imagine, as long as it's not raining, a queue for a gig would be fun :tup

Glad you had a good time, great photos :tup

did you ever find out if the loos in the park are still open?
