Meet the Guides


The Loo Ladies share a passion for London, history, interesting facts, and above all, a nice loo!

Rachel (Loo Tours Founder & Guide)


The woman who didn't want to pay to pee! Rachel founded loo tours after she developed an obsession with finding free toilets in London, and continues to take delight in sharing her knowledge and enthusiasm. She also Morris Dances... because if you work in toilets you have to have a "normal people hobby" as well.


Favourite Loo: "The one that's where I need it, when I need it."


Favourite Loo Fact: In America the flush handle is usually on the left and in England it's on the right! Even I don't know why (if you find out please tell me!)

Amber-Loo (Guide)


Amber cut her tour guiding teeth on a double-decker bus in 2002 and has been a professional guide/master of disguise since 2009. She holds an official badge to be a guide in The City of London, Westminster and Camden. She runs her own guiding under the title "American Tour Guide in London" and is always looking for ways to turn a costume opportunity into a walk around London. Her passion is bringing history to life so that all ages can enjoy and learn.


Favourite Loo: any clean loo - "If not, I'm armed with my She Wee!"

Katie-Loo (Guide)


When not gallivanting around London with a plunger, Katie can be found gallivanting around the various theatres and stages of England trying her hand at the life of a professional actor. When forced into doing a "proper" job she may be spotted putting her history degree to good use as a tour guide in various locations around the country.


Favourite Loo: The Jubiloo, of course! How can anyone fail to be won over by its patriotic charm?!


Favourite Loo Fact: Well that would be giving away some of the secrets of the tour... but here's a hint - it's to do with what happens to all the posh poo from London's Savoy Hotel!
