King’s College Hospital parking
There is no longer general public car parking at King’s College Hospital due to the construction of the Willowfield Building, our new outpatient facility.
To make sure that patients and visitors attending the hospital site can do so safely, we have introduced additional drop off and collection zones. The zones are located on Bessemer Road near to the entrances at the Hambleden Wing. People are able to leave cars unattended for a short time – between ten minutes to two hours dependent on zone – while they chaperone their relative or friend to an appointment. Visitors can also use the drop off and collection zones as required, but spaces are limited.
Once you have arrived at the hospital, our staff volunteer teams will be able to support you from the help desk and guide you to where you need to be.
People with valid Blue Badge permits can still park for free, maximum stay 4 hours. There are spaces for motorbikes that are also free to park.
We recommend you use public transport to get to the hospital whenever possible. You may need to plan your travel further in advance. Please see our public transport section.
Please refer to our frequently asked questions for more information.
Our patient transport service is available for patients who cannot travel to or from our hospitals using any other method of transport because of their medical or mobility condition, or because their medical condition would otherwise worsen. For more information, and to find out if you are eligible for the service, please visit our patient transport page.
