London Gay Saunas

London Gay Saunas

London is home to some of Europe's largest and most popular gay saunas. There is a consistent level of quality across the capital and the number of venues means there is huge diversity in the facilities and experiences on offer. Take a look at our gay sauna listing to find your perfect fit.

Visiting a London gay sauna is likely to be a highlight of any trip to the city.

Gay saunas in London generally offer a good range of well-maintained facilities. Many open late and nonstop at the weekend. Membership is not required. Minimum age is 18. If you look young, bring an ID.

Due to a number of drug-related incidents, expect to be searched on arrival in London’s gay saunas. Bringing your own drinks, including bottled water, is not permitted at most venues.

Today:  Hard Up Thursdays - 25s and under free entry

Sweatbox is an award-winning gay sauna in Soho, the heart of London’s West End. Surrounded by 21 gay bars (all within a 9-minute walk or less), it’s no wonder Sweatbox is rated as London’s busiest gay sauna.

The sprawling venue includes a fully equipped gym, 20+ capacity jacuzzi, corridors of private cabins (no extra charge), 3 furnished cabins to hire, infra-red sauna and host to London’s only gay steam maze and foam parties. Their weekly events (included in the entry fee) include the naked workouts, mid-week foam parties, in addition to their long-running Hard Up Monday & Thursday (where under 25s get in for free – must be over 18 for entry).

Sweatbox prides itself as the only gay-owned establishment (listed on a platform) to support the wellbeing of our heroes on the frontline. It was the first gay sauna to close in London to protect its customers and staff before the pandemic erupted. And, it was the last sauna in London to open following government guidelines. Sweatbox finally re-opened when it was entirely safe to do so.

With a well-thought layout designed to enforce a zero-tolerance to drugs to their environmentally friendly and antibacterial towels, the venue is 24/7. It welcomes all those who identify as he/him and they/them.
