Market Street toilets reopen

Tuesday 02 April 2019

Toilets have reopened in Guernsey's Market Buildings for the first time in over a decade.

Its managers, Bailiwick Estates, put in plans to redevelop the facilities as part of a number of changes to the inside and outside of the building in market square.

The toilets can be found in the basement of the Inner Street (pictured above). 

Sonia Taylor Director of Bailiwick Estates said:

“The new toilet facilities will not only support our customers day to day, but they also open up a variety of opportunities for all kinds of public and private events to be staged both outside and inside.

"Coupled with the new permanent bar and mezzanine exhibition space within the Inner Street and the ability to offer catering facilities, we will be bringing a whole new experience to St Peter Port as we marry cultural, dinning and a market experience with retail.”

The centre toilets are now open for use and consist of ladies and gents toilets and a baby change with a toilet. Disabled toilets will continue to be provided across Market Square in the French Halles. 

Previously there were public toilets beneath Market Square, with separate ladies and mens facilities accessible by staircases which took users under the current terrace surface. They were closed and covered over when the market road was pedestrianised and the buildings were redeveloped by Bailiwick Estates.
