Toilets will be free of charge at Regent’s Park and Primrose Hill as the charity responsible for maintaining both sites responds to the coronavirus outbreak.

The hygiene measure is being introduced so people can wash their hands more easily. Picture: Polly HancockThe hygiene measure is being introduced so people can wash their hands more easily. Picture: Polly Hancock

Normally there is a 20p charge to use the toilets, but now The Royal Parks has made them free for public use until the end of March, a measure which the charity says will better allow people to wash their hands.

"We will continue to review the situation."
