London is marking its territory with toilet-blocks turned restaurants.

The newest, on the site of  a late 19th century gents', Restaurant Story, near the Tower Bridge and with views of the Shard, has the original porcelain urinals on display.

And not far from Oxford Circus, overhead and intricately detailed cisterns remain at the Attendant cafe that's underneath Foley Street.  

In the Middle East, Dubai's Safa Park,  public facilities last year opened as The Archive, an espresso bar and a library of Middle Eastern and North African art literature designed by Japanese architect Takeshi Maruyama.

Just watch  your potty mouth, vulgar language is  strictly forbidden in the member state of the United Arab Emirates. See www.restaurantstory.co.uk.
