Public toilets in Dorset

Coronavirus information

We are currently working with town and parish councils to open as many public toilets as we can in order to cope with demand and help with washing hands during the pandemic.

Public toilets which are open are available 7 days a week and currently from 9am to 5pm unless otherwise stated.

Those that are open will be cleaned and re-stocked three times a day, but if you are using these facilities please remember to stay alert and ensure you follow social distancing measures as best you can. In order to ensure the health, safety and welfare of the public and staff the toilets will close for cleaning and repairs.

Please wash your hands regularly – before you leave home and when you get back. If you know you are likely to use a public toilet when you go out, carry your own sanitiser and hand gels.
