What is the sudden attraction of brothels in Waterloo ? One recently closed in Union Street due to very prompt action by Borough & Bankside Police .The one in Ufford Street closed only by the efforts of the landlord in evicting her tenant. Now we have two openly operating in full public view. We need joined up action to stop this and stop it now

For various reasons, bordellos close to major railway stations have always thrived.

The real issue isn't about Waterloo, but about what are the root causes of prostitution generally, regardless of whether the 'oldest profession' is exercised on street corners, in brothels, or by soliciting online.

I have never personally even entertained the idea of paying for sex: I'd rather be celibate than doing so, however there are so many men who do not share this philosophy.

The best way to shut down brothels is for all of us to abstain from using them altogether.

I do believe the real issue is about brothels in Waterloo and not universal prostitution. The question asked was "What is the sudden attraction of brothels in Waterloo?'
I do not know.
Having lived in Waterloo all my life I have never found the existence of brothels in Waterloo, or anywhere else, attractive. The whorehouse at 83 Blackfriars Road was a blot on the landscape both morally and aesthetically and was gladly missed on its demise. I hope the same will soon be said about those that have recently appeared in the area.

OHRA, I am sure you will continue your fight to get rid of them and keep us informed of your progress. More power to your campaign and more success.

Prostitution has always thrived. Iím not sure whether they still do, but the Wellington Hotel rented rooms out by the hour when I dealt with the then owners a decade or so ago. Some went to those on unpaid assignations. The others strictly cash in hand.

It would not be appropriate to disclose these address on an open forum to someone we do not know and who has just joined
