Gay Saunas in London


London has become what we call a Global City: whatever happens in the British capital generates a powerful influence which expands all over the world. It was here where one of the first gay neighbourhoods arose ever: Soho. Many cities keep trying to imitate London and revitalise central areas turning them into the epicentre of the local gay life. However, London is always a step ahead of the other cities. Actually, the British Metropolis has taken the opposite direction and London is decentralizing its gay life. It explains why we can find gay bars, clubs and saunas in Vauxhall, Shoreditch, Clapham, Earl’s Court… There is definitely life (and saunas!) out of the Soho. So we would like to introduce you to a selection of Gay Saunas in London, some of them very central and some in different areas.

The Stable

gay-sauna-london-the-stableIn the heart of the Covent Garden we can find one of the Gay Saunas in London with best facilities (and one of the smallest ones too), known before as Saunabar. It has no a big number of cabins and the dry sauna can’t fit many people. However the wet sauna and it has a stunning swimming pool. The bar area is very pleasant and they serve nice cocktails. The only handicap is not the busiest sauna in the city: sometimes is quite empty. It is the prefect option if you like relaxing atmospheres and you look for a place to chill out.


Gay-Sauna-London-CharriotsIf you ask any Londoner which Gay Sauna in London do they know, he will probably answer Charriots. It is the name of not one but p to five Saunas located in different neighbourhoods (Shoreditch, Streatham, Vauxhall). The one in Vauxhall might be the most popular one, as it is strategically located: just few meters away from the nightclubs that have turn this neighbourhood into one of the main gay hotspots of the city. It is quite busy, particularly during the weekends, when the clubs close. It is the best option for those who want to continue partying, and probably the least of the places for those who look for a relaxing place. Not far away from there, close to Waterloo, there is another Chariots, one of the biggest saunas in the city which is frequented by young guys, middle age and also some mature men.


Gay-Sauna-London-SweetboxIt is the best Gay Sauna in London to go to if you are in Soho. Located in one of the epicentres of the London’s gay life, Sweetbox has few particularities that make it stand out from others. Besides having awesome facilities (counting a huge steam sauna and a cool chill out area) it has a Gym in the ground floor. This is why the most of the guys sweating in the gym while working out, go downstairs after their training. Many of them decide to have a bit of fun before or after going to the shower. In Sweetbox you can find muscled guys, young guys and many tourists. It is usually busy but, one of the best days to go there is on Saturday night, when they organise a foam party!


Gay-Sauna-London-PleasuredomeIt is one of the Biggest Gay saunas in London. It has spa, wet sauna, dark room and two types of cabins: one that we could consider standard and another one called deluxe (sometimes you can meet someone that make it really worth it to spend a few more pounds…). They also have a massage service and two big dry saunas (and by big, they mean that up to 20 people can fit in there). All kind of guys go to the Pleasuredome sauna, which is the most underground one in the city.


Gay-Sauna-London-SailorsaunaIt is maybe one of the most unknown Gay Saunas in London, despite its convenient location its perfect location in Shoreditch, the trendy neighbourhood of the city. It counts all the facilities we expect from a sauna: dry and wet sauna, spa, But Sailorsauna stands out because of its original marketing campaigns: they have a student’s day, which offers an affordable price for them, and they also organise a latino day. On Sundays, your pass includes a free roast dinner!
