London's largest gay sauna set to close

Chariots closes another of its London saunas

One of the articles says they hope to re-open in a new location in Shoreditch. ~ Editor.

Surprised there are no recent reviews. I love this place, always have. It is always crowded and always a fair number of do-able guys, white, black and Asian. A few renters, but that kind of action is low key, and they like to play gratis from time to time.

It is rather raunchy and dark. The staff are extremely friendly but not the patrons. Often times you will see scuffles or cat fights between patrons. You will rarely see a smile on patrons even though a smile with a little wink is the best way to approach someone to get a piece of ass (arse). It is quite common to see aggressive people who wouldn't take no for an answer, so full pushes are often seen, even from someone who isn't that good looking. There are men of all ages, sizes, and races, but most play with those who have similar types and features. I was told that I was the only one who smiled. Isn't that interesting?

I visited during my last trip to London a week ago and went early on a Sunday evening. The place was packed with every kind of male you could imagine. The lounge was full of guys just hanging out and the pool side was full of lots of young guys. This place is what the good old days of bathhouses were like. Don't miss a good time and make sure you plan to spend some time here.

Definitely the best sauna in London. Huge space, great variety of guys. Lots of fun.

This is the best bathhouse in London. It is huge, with sauna, steam and pool and a wide range of guys and body types. No attitude, lots of fucking. Especially good for older, chub and bear guys.

I think this place is way past its prime. I have been coming on and off for years, and it has steadily gone downhill in upkeep and customers. Went this past bank holiday Monday, albeit late around midnight. Place was dead with only creepy guys older than 40. It was also very dirty and stinks. Definitely not coming back!

Very busy even on a Friday afternoon. Over two hundred guys of various ages, ethnic groups, and sizes were there. There isn't much hang up about people and many have large dicks. They have one of the best gloryhole, orgy, and darkroom setups in the city. The place to be.


Posted Feb 08 2008:
This still remains the largest bathhouse in London and it is the busiest with all kinds of men. Complete with several darkrooms, gloryhole setups, decent Finnish sauna, and a outrageously bright steamroom. Brits like orgies, which is just perfect for me. One guy sneered at me for walking into his gloryhole booth. He was angry but it was his fault for leaving the door half opened since it is in high demand. I had a wonderful time.

Really a stunning bathhouse. It's even great just to go there for a swim (sometimes that's all you'll do, since the attitude towards foreigners can be a little nasty). Nevertheless, the last time I went I fingered a cute twink in the steamroom.

Those that say there's not much action here must be the dads and fatties. I always have a great time here, with plenty of hot guys, particularly city-types. As well, maintenance tends to be pretty good, with plenty of attendants picking up after the masseur punters. Always worth a visit. Wonderful on Sunday afternoons.


Posted Jun 22 2005:
I've always found this place really good fun with a fair amount of really hot guys. It's my favourite sauna in London and I've never failed to get laid there. The weekend is generally quite busy and Sunday afternoons often provides several students and young married guys, as well as a few guys older than that. It's usually a really horny time.

This may be he biggest gay saunas in town, but it's also one of the dullest. Having a really un-horny layout and atmosphere. There are loads of guys there, even at quieter times, but hardly anyone seems to get off and it's very frustrating. It lacks a raunchy feel.

I visit from the U.S. frequently and I always have fun here. During my last visit, I had about five cocks and every one was nine-inches or more. The last one fucked my ass good and hard. He was a lean, muscular stud. I'll continue to go there every visit I make to this great city. Hot men, great sex, little attitude.


Posted May 26 2004:
This is by far, one of the best saunas around. It can be especially busy weekdays from about 1 or 2 pm. I have been on last two Thursdays and the place was packed with good-looking guys and a few hairy daddies.

Great place, clean, well maintained and with plenty of ‘rest rooms’. I went twice on a recent visit to London. The first time I fooled around with a hot Italian who was also visiting. Turned out we were both looking for tops so he mentioned me to a light-skinned black guy he'd fooled around with. We got together and I got pounded hard. There was a mess of lube and sweat before he was done. The second time I hooked up with a cute, built Irish guy. We sucked each other off -- mellow, but what I wanted that night. In short, I'd recommend it.


Posted Jan 05 2002:
This is the best in London. This place has a full selection of types and ages and a fully equiped gym.

Just got back from this place on a Thursday evening and it was dismal. It was more like a drop-out centre than a place to go for sex. And all that money? How can this be justified?
