World's most scenic toilets
Our favourite pics from a new book on loos with incredible views. These seats are anything but bog standard!

It feels inappropriate to interrupt the unique and personal experience of sitting alone, looking out at the edge of Earth's last untouched wilderness, writes the world's greatest travelling toilet fan, Luke Barclay.
But I will anyway.
This toilet has been described as "the eighth wonder of the world". However, of the original seven wonders of the ancient world it may be possible to see the only surviving member, the Great Pyramid at Giza, from a toilet. I received news from an air-hostess that first-class passengers (who often have windows in their toilets) can potentially enjoy a loo-view of the pyramids shortly before landing at Cairo. My loo spies are everywhere!
