Prayer Services on Motorway

Prayer Services on Motorway

So here’s your guide to service stations in the UK!

There are a number of service stations in the UK that have prayer facilities now. In this guide, we’ve listed all the Motorway Service Stations that provide a place to perform wudu and pray salah.

These rooms are generally Multi-Faith, Quite or Contemplation Rooms, so we must remember that they are not solely for Muslims. Muslims should be respectful towards other faiths and people using the rooms. Such rooms are not a right, rather a privilege, so we advise you to be courteous when using facilities.

In terms of Wudu, some have special facilities and others will have showers available for use. If you end up using a disabled toilet or the sinks then remember, it doesn’t take long to find some paper to soak up the water. You may also want to consider buying some waterproof socks. This means you can wipe over the top and be on your way.

Even where there isn’t a room, you’ll find that the majority will have large car parks, so you can easily find a patch of grass, or pray by your car at the stations. I’ve never been questioned or heckled at whilst praying, so Insha’Allah there should be no problems for you either!

The majority of service stations will have the following facilities:

  • Gents toilets
  • Ladies toilets
  • Disabled toilets
  • Baby changing
  • Changing rooms
  • Free Shower

So feel free to stop at any and refresh your Wudu.

We’ve listed below Motorway Service Stations with prayers facilities. There is also a Qibla here.

Alhamdulillah, there are Muslims in the majority of cities and towns off the motorway, so you’re also only 5-10 minutes to a Masjid.

The majority of airports have Wudu and Prayer room facilities.
