Finnish Rooftop Sauna

The Southbank Centre has been celebrating all things Nordic this year and finishing up in style by creating a Nordic Winter Wonderland complete with rooftop Finnish sauna.

The Rooftop Bar, sat above the bustle in the roof garden of Queen Elizabeth Hall, is the perfect spot to enjoy panoramic views across London following a Finnish Rooftop Sauna experience. Step into the specially designed Nordic sauna that sits on Queen Elizabeth Roof Terrace, and let a sauna expert demonstrate steaming stones and introduce you to the authentic sauna experience. Reaching 90 degrees celsius inside, you can then cool down in the open air (or with cold water buckets if you’re feeling brave), all while enjoying exclusive views over the River Thames. Priced from £15. 

The 17-acre site is transformed into a winter landscape and the ever-popular Wintertime Market sees alpine chalets lined across Queen’s Walk offering the very best in global street food, artisan gifts and more. Dubbed London’s pop-up King, Jimmy Garcia presents his pop-up alpine lodge dining experience and The Hoplocker Bar returns for a second year with their Nordic inspired Wintertime Bar, serving local and international hearty craft ales. Expect plenty of festive fun and entertainment in abundance. Link.
