#WheresMyWaterFountain??

Background

For the first time this century 30 stations have installed publicly accessible water refill points. This page will help you find the ones that currently exist, and will be updated as more are installed. All are free to use unless otherwise stated.

 

Network Rail have announced they will install fountains at all 20 of their UK managed stations. So far 17 have been installed, the timescales for the others are expected to be by the end of 2019. The only other rail companies in the UK to install water fountains within railway stations, to our knowledge, are Greater Anglia, LNER, South Western and TFL.

 

You can help ensure the ones listed in the green section are kept, and more are installed, by contacting the relevant rail companies on social media, as detailed below. There is suggested social media text for inspiration at the bottom of the page. Many of the individual stations are only on Twitter, but the train companies are on most platforms.

 

Where does your local train station come on these lists?

These stations have a public water fountain, if you are passing through use it, take a photo, and thank the station on social media.
