Our guide to London’s best gay saunas, jacuzzis and spa treatments

Pleasuredrome Sauna Pleasuredrome Sauna

From Soho to Shoreditch and down to the fleshpots of Vauxhall, London's gay scene offers plenty of opportunities to sweat. And why not stay for some extra pampering in the form of a hot stone massage?

  • Chariots Limehouse

    574 Commercial Rd , E14 7JD

    Part of the Chariots gay sauna chain, this venue is conveniently located next to BJ's White Swan – so if you don't pull at the pub, you could always try your luck here. It's smaller than Chariots Shoreditch, and some say friendlier. In addition to the sauna, there's a large steam room, a cinema room and video cabins, plus a 'huge fun shower'. Start lathering!

  • Chariots Shoreditch

    1 Fairchild St, EC2A 3NS

    London's biggest and busiest gay sauna is decked out like a kitsch Roman bath – and there's plenty of Roman-style debauchery. Search for a gladiator in the indoor pool (no bathing suit required) or in the steam room, sauna, two jacuzzis or cinema room, and tame him in a private cabin (which feels like a doctor's examination room; some people might like that). Chariots feels a bit like a leisure centre, only with sex. If you don't indulge, recline by the pool and watch the bathing beauties.

  • Chariots Vauxhall

    63-64 Albert Embankment, SE1 7TP

    No expense has been spared creating a sauna for the Vauxhall village. With two steam rooms, two saunas, a dark room, two video rooms, a huge café/internet lounge and more private rooms than could surely ever be filled, there is almost too much space. At quiet times the atmosphere can be sterile. Go late in the weekend as the clubs spill out to make the most of the pumped-up muscle crowd, who find their way from nearby Fire and Beyond.

  • Chariots Waterloo

    101 Lower Marsh, SE1 7AB

    Sweat en masse at Chariots Waterloo: it boasts the largest sauna in the UK (with space for 50 guys), a mammoth steam room and a maze of 35 dark rooms. For travellers, there's also a luggage check, so you can get lucky while you wait for your train from Waterloo station.

  • Locker Room Sauna

    8 Cleaver St, SE11 4DP

    Locker Room is a small, friendly neighbourhood sauna not too far from Vauxhall. There are dark rooms, shower stalls, steam rooms, sunbeds and a sauna.

  • Pleasuredrome Sauna

    Arch 124 Cromwell Rd, SE1 8XE

    Waterloo's second largest gay sauna (after Chariots). Decorated in an industrial style and recently renovated, the venue is spread over two floors and features two steam rooms, a sauna, a slick maze, private rooms, spa pool, sunbeds and a café. Very busy at the weekends, it also picks up considerable trade during the week, largely due to the all-night opening hours and proximity to Waterloo station.

  • Sauna Bar

    29 Endell St, WC2H 9BA

    A bar, steam room, splash pool, showers and private rooms have all been crammed into this small sauna. There's also a 35-man jacuzzi – the largest in the UK.

  • Sweatbox Soho

    1 Ramillies St, W1

    With its striking black-and-red design and sleek fittings, this state-of-the-art gay gym and sauna looks more like a club than a traditional fitness centre. The sauna occupies the lower two floors and features two giant steam rooms, two Turkish hot rooms, a 14-man jacuzzi, large stylish chill-out room with TV and Wi-Fi, two video lounges and a maze of innovative and striking cabins, some with two-way mirrors for the exhibitionists among you. Spa treatments include hot stone massage and spray tanning. Every Wednesday and Saturday the venue hosts a foam party, complete with DJs.

Users say


Chariots - E14, Limehouse. Very poor. Old in decor, fixtures and fittings extremely rusty in areas poor standard of hygiene. Likely to be made to feel uncomfortable while changing as I was. Crowd very small and are prone to be chatting about you behind your back. Overheard staff being involved in conversations with customers over a fellow customer who had recently arrived. Won't return and would strongly advise giving this facility a miss.
