Parking

Parking is very limited and there is often a queue. We encourage patients and visitors to use public transport, cycle, or to be dropped off at the hospital.

There is a taxi rank outside the Hambleden Wing (main) entrance. There are free phones to book cabs at the Hambleden Wing entrance and the Golden Jubilee Wing entrance.

Disabled drivers

There are 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.
Disabled drivers can also use the main car park, but they must pay the usual parking charge.

Car parking charges

  • Up to 1 hour: £2.50
  • Up to 2 hours: £5.00
  • Then £2.00 per hour or part hour
  • Night charge 10pm to 7am: £2.00

Parking is paid for in cash before you leave the car park. Payment machines are:

  • in the car park
  • at the Hambleden Wing main entrance
  • at the Golden Jubilee Wing entrance.

Why we charge for car parking

The car park at King’s College Hospital does not make a profit. All your money goes straight back into maintaining and improving parking and access to our hospital campus.

We believe NHS money should be spent on treating patients. If we do not charge for parking, money intended for patient care will have to be used to provide and maintain parking facilities on the site.

How to get to the car park

The approach to the car park is from Coldharbour Lane. From there turn into Caldecot Road, then right into Bessemer Road and right into Cutcombe Road.

See our campus map for more details.

Short-term parking

There are a small number of short-term parking spaces for dropping off and collecting patients outside the entrances to Hambleden Wing and Golden Jubilee Wing.

Cycling

There are several bicycle racks alongside the Bessemer Road and Ruskin Wing entrances. Please secure your bike with a high-quality lock.

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.
