Discover the Bath House - Russian Banya in London
Welcome to The Bath House, a traditional Russian banya in the heart of London. Our venue is a Grade II listed building located close to Victoria station and within walking distance of Belgravia, Knightsbridge and Mayfair.
History of Russian Banya
The Russian banya arrived in London in the late 19th century when the city saw a large influx of Jewish immigrants from Russia and Eastern Europe. They brought with them their own way of life and opened synagogues and kosher food shops. They also introduced the custom of Russian steam baths and by the end of the 19th century, there were five public bath houses in East London. Perhaps the most famous Russian bath house in London stood opposite the synagogue at 86 Brick Lane and was called Schevzik’s Russian Vapour Baths.
With the opening of the Bath House later this year in Victoria, we hope to revive this tradition of the Russian bath house in London.
