In addition to the ones you mentioned (or close variations of them), British English also has, among others:
Have (or go for) a slash / tinkle / tiddle
Spend a penny
Have a jimmy ['jimmy riddle', cockney rhyming slang = 'piddle']
Have a gypsy's ['gypsy's kiss', cockney rhyming slang = 'piss']
We Brits also have some extra words for a toilet, including:
Karzy [old fashioned],
Gents' (or ladies').
Finally, we would distinguish between 'going for a wee', 'having a wee' and 'doing a wee'. The first means the entire excursion to the bathroom, the actual process, and associated activities that occur on the way. The second is similar to the first, but only includes whatever happens in the place where th urination occurs. The third means the specific act of urinating. To confuse matters, though, 'going wee' is not synonymous with 'going for a wee', but instead means 'doing a wee'.
