The baths include a steam room, a series of three hot rooms of varying temperature, marble slabs for massage and body scrubbing and an icy plunge pool. In addition there are two relaxation areas. As of February 2007, the sessions on Mondays are mixed-sex; other days are single-sex.
The swimming pool is slightly over 30 metres long. There is a small sauna next to the pool.
There is also a well equipped modern gym located within the building.
A notorious fight scene from director David Cronenberg's 2007 film, Eastern Promises, was filmed at Ironmonger Row Baths, which involved Viggo Mortensen's character fighting Chechnyan gangsters to the death in the steam room.
