London Gay Saunas

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

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. The minimum age is usually 18. If you look young, bring ID.

Due to a number of drug related incidents, expected to be searched on arrival. Bringing your own drinks, including bottled water, is not permitted at most venues.
