Chariots (Shoreditch) *

London's top draw for sexy steam
Largest of five London-wide outlets in the Chariots chain of popular saunas, with three floors of manly distractions, including two 20-man steam rooms, two 30-man saunas, massive tiled warm room with heated benches, internet café and snack bar, a maze of 50 private rest rooms [UK = rooms for resting, not toilets], satellite TV lounge, heated pool, two jacuzzis, masseurs, gym, 500 lockers and smoking area. Opened in 1996. Other branches followed in Streatham (Southwest London), Waterloo, Limehouse (East London) and, most recently, Vauxhall [see entry], located under two arches and now the second largest of the lot. In November 2014 Chariots surrendered its Limehouse venue to new owners Sailors, who've reverted the space to its previous moniker.

    sauna is good but too mobile around and people making photos or videos (CAREFUL)
    Sauna is good, mix races and age..... But again i must speak.... Mobile phone must be illegal and prohibide inside saunas. Today i saw 2 asians taking pics or videos of people inside. Also some stuff walking around with mobile phone. I think this is crime many camera inside but nobody care. STOP phones in sauna.

    The biggest sauna in London
    I've lived in London for 10 years and used to go to this sauna back in the day before they opened the Vauxhall branch. I must say that back then it used to be much better as it was the most popular sauna with lots of hot guys. \nNowadays it\'s still probably the biggest in London and the only one which has swimming pool and 2 jacuzzis. However, it\'s not as popular as it used to be with mostly over 40 crowd.
