Kendal runs a Courtesy Toilet Scheme which offers clean, safe and accessible toilets in convenient locations across the town. You are welcome to use the toilets in the participating businesses during their normal opening hours. Several of the venues offer wheelchair access and baby changing facilities, and Kendal Leisure Centre has a Changing Places toilet.
