The Waterloo branch of Chariots Sauna has the largest sauna cabin in any gay facility in the UK, a 40-man steam room and 35 private cabins, occupying the entire 1st floor of a row of shops on Lower Marsh St.

One of the most popular saunas in South London. Also features a comfortable TV lounge and café bar serving drinks and snacks, although it’s worth noting that there is a great choice of places to eat nearby.

  1. Shame it's closing

    “Shame it's closing on the 17th March 2018 was a very nice place to come unwind relax and meet other people it's the end of another era such a shame it couldn't stay open. Greedy people who want to rip it down and build a 66 room hotel in its place and other shops that have to move on as well I think all the staff should go to Vauxhall and work there. thank you all the staff that keep everyone safe and cared for a big thank you shall miss you......“

  2. Great place - shame it's closing

    “I love this place. I was a frequent visitor there for the last two years. I loved the music they played! All 80s and 90s music. :) Loved the sexy bears who would go and the tourists. Shame it's closing down. Another London sauna bites the dust. This sauna's last day is March 17 2018.“

    “Now a regular visit about once a month. Mainly middle age customers like me, although younger guys always welcome! Friendly staff, always clean. I am bi but great place to get naked without feeling at all self-conscious. Really hope it stays open.“

  4. Alright

    “Went there Monday afternoon... maybe that's why it was quiet. Lots of mature bears and not a single one I found attractive. I guess it's just not my kind of place. It's relatively clean and staff were good though.“

  5. Loud Music

    “I was on a short break from Ireland. This is a nice sauna, met some nice guys here. The background music was way too loud! However, it was good music, some of it was 1980's which I liked, & some of it was more recent music, would be much nicer at a lower volume. As I lay in the "warm room" to relax, it was the only room without music! The smell of body odour off some of the other clientele was overbearing, (I know that's not the fault of the staff & management). I was able to buy breakfast locally.“

    “I completely agree that this place is spoiled by the constant inescapable loud music which is completely unrelated to the age demographic who frequent this sauna. With just a little more attention to the preferences of the paying attendees this could be a very good venue.“

  7. Not worth it

    “The sauna is not big. There's only one place to shower. No jacuzzi, the cabines are very small.“

  8. shame

    “Could be a good sauna BUT there is constant overload music playing everywhere (and I mean everywhere - you cannot escape it) as music is a personal thing I resent getting drowned in somebody else idea of what constitutes music. This probably explains why its not quite as popular as it should be. I would love to go again and last time I took earplugs but even that didn't completely muffle it out! So until they sort it out I'am afraid im going to have to give it a miss. Pity though.“

    • Music puts me off

      “I do agree. Sometimes even the music can put you off. It would be better to play instrumental music only if anything. I stopped going as I used to because of it.
      They also should think about having bigger TV screens with a better image quality and being able to listen to the porn film in the TV Lounge.“

  9. My lucky day

    “I was here on two consecutive mid-week afternoons this month and had a great time each day. It is right behind Waterloo station, easy to find, very clean, very friendly personnel (I had a nice conversation with an Italian guy working there, on the merits of home-made lasagna!). Staff cleaning the rooms, toilets and corridors constantly. It's a big place, plenty of lockers, private cabins, glory-holes, 2 dry saunas and 1 steam room. The dark room is tiny and badly shaped. There was a mixture of guys both days I was there, not too many but I did meet a couple of Arab stallions! I would go back here no problem.“
