The UKs first public floating sauna launching in Liverpool

The UK’s first public floating sauna will be located on the banks of Princes Dock, offering a serene space in the centre of the city where visitors can unwind and escape.

Peel Waters, a specialist in regenerating waterfront areas, has teamed up with WYLD Sauna to introduce a traditional Nordic sauna experience to Liverpool Waters this summer.

The founders of WYLD Sauna are enthusiasts of outdoor swimming and sauna. After witnessing the popularity of floating saunas in Scandinavia, they have decided to introduce this concept to various locations in the UK, with Liverpool being the first one on their list.

The team responsible for the project has submitted a planning application to Liverpool City Council. They are aiming to commence operations by the start of summer in 2024.

A new floating pontoon at Princes Dock will provide an exciting WYLD Sauna experience. The pontoon will accommodate a 30-person sauna, equipped with ice baths, waterfall showers, outdoor seating, and changing rooms. It will also offer direct access to the water, ensuring an ultimate swim-sauna experience.

Traditional dry saunas are restorative, comforting spaces that promote a deep sense of calm and offer numerous mental and physical health benefits – many of which are amplified by moving from the heat and plunging into cold water.

Jon Miller, Co-Founder of WYLD Sauna, commented:

“We are thrilled to be launching this UK-first in such a perfect location. There really is nothing better than being able to dip into cold, fresh water after a sauna. Princes Dock is the ideal site for us, where we can contribute to the thriving community of local swimmers, runners and scuba divers.

“We’re big believers in the health and social benefits that come with saunas, and want to make sure it’s available to as many people as possible. That’s why we’re making sure access to this high-quality wellbeing experience will be possible at an affordable price.”

Liza Marco, Senior Asset Manager for Liverpool Waters commented:

“We are all very excited to see this remarkable addition to the waterside in what will be a UK first. The WYLD Sauna will fit right in at Liverpool Waters, with the docks already alive with open water swimming, canoeing and scuba diving, alongside the occasional dragon boat race and international canoe polo tournaments! Residents, commercial tenants, and visitors can now enjoy an even greater range of healthy activities alongside bars, cafes, restaurants and hotels – there is something for everyone at Princes Dock.”

The WYLD Sauna is set to operate seven days a week, opening early and closing late. Customers can pay for their sauna session on an hourly basis, starting from just £5. Bookings will become available two weeks prior to the launch.
