Former saunas in London

13 posts in this topic

So many saunas in London have closed down - especially in recent years. How many can you remember? Here are some...

Barnet Sauna

Archway Sauna

Claudines Sauna Euston

Kings Cross Sauna

Kingsbury Sauna

Stamford Hill Sauna

St James' Sauna, Walthamstow

Upton Park Sauna

Golkhawk Road Sauna

New Cross Sauna

Sparkles Sauna, West Norwood

Mile End Sauna

Hornsey Road Sauna

Goldhawk Road Sauna

Stratford Sauna - now reopened under a new name

Bay Sauna, Tottenham - changed name

Omega Sauna, Tottenham - now reopened under a new name

Billet Sauna, Walthamstow

Chadwell Heath Sauna

plus a couple in Dalston and one opposite Warren Street Station that I can't remember the name of. It is interesting to note that these saunas have been mainly in North and East London. So few in West or South London over the years.

I think that sauna is still going, but under a different name. There used to be 3 different saunas on Leyton High Road and I think two still exist.

As noted by the OP, Stratford has recently re-opened (after almost 2 years!) as Libby's.

Has anyone been? I had some good experiences (and a few not-so-good) at the old place and I'm curious whether it's the same kind of set up.

Annabel's and Crystal's are still going although I'd give the former a miss if I were you. Not been to the latter for many years and several name changes.
