Gaybod is not a platform for anonymous complaint

! The question is often posed - “when is the best day or time to go to this sauna?” Well, there is no definitive answer for that.
It much depends, like any other cruising location, as to what is on TV, the weather or whether the local football team is playing at home etc.
Sometimes certain days of the week are recommended, but one can never be sure whether on that particular day there will be bathers there or not.
There also no point is ringing up the sauna and asking – “Are there many people in?”. As at the time there may be few there but if 10 minutes time the place is packed.


Finally - when you do visit a Sauna say you saw it previewed on Gaybod

Waterloo is not a bad place to try but it's layout is a bit weird and it does need to be busy. The friendliest London sauna I've been to, if you're not looking for spaced out twinks, is Locker Room in Cleaver Street, Kennington. A 6 - 7 minute walk from the tube it's neither the biggest nor the busiest, except maybe for it's debauched Wednesday themed 'parties, but the punters and staff are unusual in that they actually talk to each other and apart from the odd pushy person the vibe there is very laid back. Have fun, wherever you decide to go.

Hi Cas75

Unless you find Chariots Waterloo particularly convenient, I would suggest that you try the E15 Club
which is a very friendly place where you will be made welcome.

Read the comments under the E15 Club listing to see whether you think it will suit you or not as an alternative.

The only sauna I know showing hetero porn as well as gay porn is The Greenhouse at Luton.

Are there any London hetero porn cinemas? If not, does Pleasuredome or any of the Chariots show hetero porn?

Well - thank you for ringing Chariots, establishing they are open for trading and that the website being down has been ongoing for a while.

I guess it is just a hole in their marketing plan then. I wonder how many others though saw the website was down, made the assumption they had stopped trading and then went to the Pleasuredrome (or other saunas - there are laternatives!) as they didn't have the time on the ground to check out if the sauna was open?

Darren, I have just telephoned Waterloo Chariots - the phone was answered and they are open - at least for today.

I raised the matter of the Website. The staff member said he could do nothing and that it had been down for weeks and was solely in the hands of the director concerned.

As this matter is general rather than specific to Streatham - I wonder if one of the Moderators will move these messages to the General Messages at the bottom of the Greater London page

NW6Bear - Thank you for that and I found it interesting reading. I also looked on Comp's House and saw that the Accounts had been submitted within the time limit.

However - the original query still stands for somebody local in London - is the company still trading?

Have a nice week - all of you!

I think, Darren, that they changed the gaysauna.co.uk to chariots.com some months ago as their main webpage. You get a message "This webpage is not available" if you try to log onto "gaysauna".

Chariots is registered at Companies House as "Chariots Health Club Limited" with a Company No. 03794001. The Registered Company address is in Chelmesford. A search on opencompany.co.uk makes quite interesting reading.

NW6bear - thank you very much for that. I checked my saved URLs and the domain name that I have used for Chariots sauna for years is gaysauna.co.uk. On the WhoIs tools is does state it is registered to Shoreditch Chariots til 2016. Being registered until then is one thing; if there is an operational business behind it is another. I also looked up companies House but could not identify the company.

Hi Darren - after your post, I decided to have a look at the DomainTools site and apparently the Chariots domain is for sale!

With the Chariots website down, can somebody local in London confirm either that it is just a website issue, Or

that Chariots has ceased trading?

I'm bi curious and living in London. I'm available usually weekdays...

Looking for a nice gay/bi sauna to try, any recommendations? Anybody would like to take me there?

Paradise Spa closed about 6 months after it opened. Listings on another site indicate it was never really completed and went down hill rapidly so lost the North London trade it could have capitalised on. Steam Works appears to have closed it's doors about 3 months ago.

The sauna boom seems to be waning - too many of them now and the pink pound will only stretch so far. The Chariot's group keep going but as they charge £19 entry for most of their venues and have shut down glory holes etc they don't seem that committed. Pleasuredrome in Waterloo has recently upset its regulars by closing off half of the facilities, without warning, for 'refurbishment' without offering a discount on entry. The friendliest, if not largest, sauna in London would now appear to be LockerRoom in Kennington and the numbers attending their Wednesday themed evenings are growing. As a gay owned and run business they do seem to spend more time listening to their clients requests than is the norm.

The Paradise Spa is closed, and the 309 in New Cross had its doors closed and plenty of envelopes were waiting to be rescued.

Any one got any news on this?

Go well

Paid my first visit to Pleasuredrome yesterday and was really pleased that I went.
As previous posts have said it is real competition too, not just against Chariot's W/loo, but the whole of the Chariot's group. The only slight downer was that the jacuzzi wasn't working, but apart from that I had a great time with guys of all ages, from a very nice 23yr old who had a great cock, but was a bottom like me. (His cum spurted everywhere, like a fountain...) to a 50ish guy who must have fucked me for about 15 mins before wanking all over me and then sucked me dry when he had finished,
Will definitely be going back there when I'm next in London.
Cheers guys.
