Are there any, because my research would suggest not! It looks as though the loos in Kensington Gardens are now closed. I'm asking because I'll be queueing all day for a gig there on the 22nd and I know we won't be able to use the loos at the venue until doors at about 6pm.

I've sussed out coffee shops along Kensington High Street where we'll take it in turns to grab a drink, something to eat and use their loos but was rather hoping we wouldn't have to buy something every time :)
:think the only ones I can think of will be at the science and history museums, down exhibition road.

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
Toilets are inside the hall, best one to use is number 6 downstairs. - no one knows its there! And theres a cafe there that has toilets HTH
there is a big store nearby that sells food and all sorts of other bits and pieces! ;)
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 :)
Great day had by all!

Toilets were :tup Cafe was :tup Band were amazing, as always :tup

We were the first to arrive....

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?
