about

New Docklands Steam Baths is one of the last standing traditional bath houses in London. Established in 1990 with a very strong presence in the boxing community, it developed and evolved over the years to become a Charitable Trust which offers a place of respite for members of various groups, all of whom stand united in their appreciation of good steam – a fully inclusive community, where status, origin and background don’t matter. 

Communal bathing dates back to the ancient times and has a long and vibrant history not only in the capital but also other major cities in the UK. Having developed a more private and clinical approach to bathing, however, we’ve lost this very important fundament of community life, which once was a platform for social exchange. Although less common nowadays, communal bathing still exists and succeeds in bringing communities together in a very special way.
