Parking

Update to parking at King's College Hospital

From Tuesday 8 June 2021, there will be no general public car parking at King's College Hospital. This is due to construction work beginning on a new outpatients building situated next to the Normanby Building on Bessemer Road.

To continue to make sure that patients and visitors attending the hospital site can do so safely, we are introducing additional drop off and collection zones. The zones will be located on Bessemer Road near to the entrances at the Hambleden Wing. People will be 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 will also be able to 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.

Please note that entry and exit to the car park for drop off will be via Caldecot Road. The existing entrance and exit in Cutcombe Road will be closed.

People with valid Blue Badge permits will still be able to park for free. There are spaces for motorbikes that are also free to park.

If you would normally park on the hospital site please make different arrangements to attend the hospital if you can. 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.

Patient transport

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.

Blue Badge holders

People with valid Blue Badge permits will still be able to park for free. There are around 20 marked parking spaces across the site for drivers who are registered disabled and have a valid Blue Badge. There is no charge for parking in these spaces.

Blue Badge holders can also park in any marked public bay for free when on site, as a patient or visitor.

Cycling

There are cycle racks and storage points across the site that can be used by patients and visitors. Please ensure that bicycles are left secured with a high quality lock and not in the way of footpaths.

Motorbikes

Parking for motorbikes or mopeds at King’s is limited. There are about 30 ground anchors on Bessemer Road for use by patients, visitors and staff. There is no charge for using them.
