Beauty of Communal Bathing

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. The only place in London where you can still experience what communal bathing is all about. A DIY (Do-It-Yourself) spa experience, where you’re fully in control of your own treatment, be it a scrub or a schmeiss! We’ll be delighted to share our knowledge and expertise, but ultimately the way you steam is entirely up to you.
