History of Russian Banya

The Bath House is a traditional Russian banya and steam sauna in the centre of London with spa treatments inspired by a centuries-old history. 

The banya has its origins in the woods and was where people would meet to wash. A large wooden chamber was heated using a wood-burning stove onto which water was thrown to generate steam. People would gather inside to sweat, wash and beat themselves with birch and oak branches. After steaming themselves, they would rush out to swim in nearby lakes and rivers or dive into snowdrifts. Before the arrival of Christianity in Russia the banya was also the spiritual centre of the community. The banya was not just somewhere to wash but also a place to feast, to worship, to mourn and to marry. Women would often give birth in the banya and the dead would be bathed and sent on their way to the afterlife with a venik. 

Wherever there are Russians, you will find banyas. They come in all shapes and sizes, from basic rural shacks to vast palatial urban complexes, are simultaneously private and communal spaces and are popular among all classes, sexes and ages.

Hidden London treasure of Russian Culture and Spa continues to leave me astounded! The Bath House is by far the most truly authentic experience of Russian tradition and culture of Banya in London! The warm welcome and attention to detail continues to leave me astounded. An absolute must for those looking to experience Russian culture and combining the health benefits of visiting a spa. I simply cannot recommend highly enough! A truly hidden treasure in London!

A must try experience in London This is truly one of the most amazing places to visit in London. It is such a unique experience, that left me feeling so relaxed I struggled to believe it. All of the staff are helpful and knowledgeable, the banya is extremely clean and professionally run. I definitely recommend staying for a meal, as in my opinion the banya serves the most authentic and best tasting Russian cuisine in London. I believe that the parenie leaf treatment is a must try!

Очень понравилась. Рекомендую Баня в центре Лондона. Причём именно в центре, рядом с Букингемским дворцом. Персонал приветливый, говорят на нескольких языках естественно включая русский. Шкафчики на электронных ключах, вместительные и что особенно порадовало с отдельной полочкой для мелочей вроде ключей или телефона. Удобно. Тапочки, полотенца, простыни, шапки - всё есть на месте. Санитайзеры расставлены по углам, хотя зачам они в бане не представляю :)) Парилка большая, места много, Печь красивая, температура когда я пришёл была 75-80, но по градуснику было видно что можно разогнать четь не вдвое больше. Душ хороший, с вёдрами холодной воды (кому надо) и купель холодная на месте, очень знатно можно окунуться после парилки. Банщики профессионалы. Пропарили меня хорошими вениками (берёза + эвкалипт) за 15 минут перезагрузили мой организм от и до, проводили потом до купели, потому что ноги мои еле шли, после такого расслабления. зона отдыха/восстановления с кафе приятная, в хорошем "советском" стиле , с плакатами на стенах. Меню скромное, но ведь не в ресторан на обед пришли, Всё что надо есть. Вода, чай, квас, пиво и тд. Супы, основные блюда, десерт, алкоголь. Цены для Лондона весьма приемлемые, хотя кому то могут показаться высокими. Комплексы услуг подобраны хорошо, чувствуется что все сделано с русской душой. Напоминает Московские Сандуны. Резюме: Очень понравилась. Всё на высшем уровне. Спасибо

Superb Russian Banya experience Not only a superb banya experience but a perfect place to relax and spend a few hours away from the hustle and bustle of london. The staff were super attentive, handing me towels and a wool hat for the heat, the banya itself very luxurious and I'm pleased I braved the freezing pool (for at least 4 seconds). Changing areas are very clean and smart, and there's a wide selection of food and drink. Could not recommend this more highly. I hope to return soon with a group of friends.

Magnificent banya Anyone who likes a spa will love this banya. It is an authentically Russian affair with shapka hats to stop your head overheating and vodka and beer available in the restaurant after you have bathed. I had a peek at the private suites with their own facilities (a super friendly staff member allowed me to have a look as no one was using them). They are amazing and would make a celebration very special. I will definitely be back very soon.

Fantastic Banya - I will be going again I can highly recommend this Banya- but be sure to leave lots of time for your trip as you will want to spend hours there. I booked the Classic package which included the parenie ritual and a massage and both were incredible. I had never had the parenie treatment before and really enjoyed the scent of the Birch leaves and the flow of the hot air in the room and while it is a very gentle treatment it feels utterly restorative and transportive. The massage was one of the best I've ever had- with a seriously experienced therapist who did her best to break down every lump and bump in my extremely tense muscles in the short time she had... I left wishing I'd tried more treatments. This is a great place to go with a group of friends as everyone can go at their own speed, enjoying time going in and out of the sauna and cold water pool and having treatments, and then coming together at your table in the restaurant where you are treated to delicious food and drinks. We tried a few salads, the Pelmeni dumplings and the Bortsh and it was all extremely good. The whole experience feels very authentic & the staff are super helpful. All in all a great experience and we will be going again and again!
