Second coming of steam in the UK

The British Sauna Society is an emerging, charitable organisation that promotes sauna culture in the UK.
Happy saunners!

Sauna bathing is possibly the world's best kept secret to well-being and a healthy life.

Regular use of private and public saunas for health, relaxation and socialising is commonplace in Finland, Scandinavia, Baltics, Russia, Central Europe and more. We believe, that the same could be achieved in Britain.
We work together

To establish and promote a new wave of sauna practice in the UK that draws from different international sauna traditions, with a mission to support sauna quality in the UK.

Our purposes are to
Promote sauna culture in the United Kingdom.
Provide standards and guidance on building, operating and using a sauna.
Engage with and expand the sauna community.

To rebalance your mind and body – sauna experience can have it all.
