Popular gay sauna in the heart of Vauxhall gay village. Chariots is busy every night, especially at the weekends after the nearby bars and dance clubs close.

Facilities include 500 lockers, two 20-man steam rooms, two 30-man saunas, two dark rooms, and a maze with 50 private cabins. There’s an internet café with TV lounge.

Open until late on weekdays and nonstop on the weekends. Don’t be surprised if you have to queue from 4am on a Sunday morning when there is a big party in the Vauxhall area.

Impossible to miss on Albert Embankment with its large signs, just a few steps from EAGLE London  and FiRE club.

  1. clean and hot

    “At the weekend on a Sunday afternoon the sauna attracts a sophisticated gentlemen crowd. Expect to be pampered in brand new sauna and jacuzzi where you can relax and melt all your weekly cares away. I go there every week and I come away feeling like I have been in a luxury health spa in the country.“

  2. Rude security staff

    “Never again in this sauna. The security staff and the policy of this sauna is terrible. After 1,5 year used I believe that this sauna is terrible. At the begin it was perfect but the last 6 month the staff and the security policy its terrible. Never again.“

  4. London guy.

    “I have been using the Vauxhall Chariots on and off for the last five years. It has always been the best London sauna in my opinion. The atmosphere is friendly and not as dark as many other saunas. Recently on two visits, I was approached by the new manager who was very rude and accusing in his manner. I ended up leaving shortly afterwards on both occasions.

    I understand that the sauna staff have a job to do but this kind of attitude should never be employed by front line staff as it is so off-putting. I have seen the same manager following other sauna users in an intimidating way. I will not be returning if this particular staff member is in attendance. I would have thought that any establishment that is dependant on customer numbers to survive would be more careful with the type of persons they employ.“

  6. Throw your money into the road

    “The clientele is falling away quickly and with good reason. The place is filthy when staff do their best, it’s all undone by lazy management. There poor work attitude and ignorance towards we who pay towards there wages. The management and owners should be ashamed of the business and its condition. There are so many better places than this place.“

  7. A mixed bag

    “I have been four times recently and every time I came away happy to return. There are many cabins and one dark room where I went and was soon joined by others. That led to discovering a partner and from there we went to a cabin to enjoy ourselves. I took condoms and lube.“

  8. Follow the house rules

    “When entering people house you are bonded with their house rules. Thus, many comments saying the staff is rude or to much issues is all because when we not following the rules. Indeed, I'm very happy checking being done before entering the venue because at the end it's for our own security. Especially when its close to clubs area. Add on, especially on weekends opening 24 hours. My second visit here after reading all these comments I generally can conclude such for upcoming visitors. At the end, the right comments help many other visitors come along. Here you go:

    1. Security - yes they will check before enter, if you not guilty then why have to worry?
    2. Staff rude- who said? What you give that's what you get. I have a very good time there especially the staff who at the bar very friendly (sorry i can't remember his name). So be nice to people they will nice back to you.
    3. Value for money? Yes not to say it is expensive especially on weekends but I think its worth for visitor like me to come once a while.
    4. Cleanliness - I don't say its very clean but this is the area I think they can improve further (unless the owner do read this).

    Overall, worth visiting.“
