The original Chariots, also known as Chariots Shoreditch, claimed to be the UK's largest gay sauna, and included a swimming pool as well as the usual facilities. It was severely damaged by fire in March 2011, but subsequently re-opened. It closed permanently in February 2016, as the site is to be redeveloped. Other branches have been at:
- Waterloo (to be demolished)
- Limehouse (now Sailors Sauna)
- Streatham (closed suddenly in February 2016)
