We have two, individual, accessible toilets located by the female and male toilets, on the Ground Floor. When using these toilets please give priority to people whose need is more urgent and be aware that not all disabilities are visible.
There are all gender toilets on the Second Floor. You can access these by going through the door marked ‘Godber Studio’ and up the staircase on the left.
