Maps and directions

King's College Hospital is located in Camberwell. To reach us we would advise you to use public transport.

Getting to King's College Hospital by Train

Denmark Hill train changes from Sunday, 9 December 2012

From 9 December 2012 there will be no direct trains between London Bridge and Denmark Hill. This is due to the East London Line (ELL) extension which will replace the current South London Line (SLL) service between Victoria and London Bridge and to the remodelling of London Bridge station which will start early in 2013.

People will have to change trains at:
*   Queens Road Peckham (has step-free access between trains)
*   Peckham Rye (does not have step-free access between trains)

There will also be a reduction in services between Denmark Hill to Victoria from four services per hour to two services per hour.

These changes we anticipate will be in place for 5 years


The completion of the new London Overground Orbital service means that there are trains every 15 minutes between Highbury and Islington and  Clapham Junction via Surrey Quays stopping at all stations in between. These include Wandsworth Road, Clapham High Street, Denmark Hill, Peckham Rye and Queens Road.

Links to new destinations and connections to other services including Canada Water, Shadwell, Whitechapel and Shoreditch High Street. You will also be able to change trains at Surrey Quays to continue south to West Croydon and Crystal Palace.

Getting to King's College Hospital by car

Before travelling to King's by car please consider that there are very few car parking spaces close to or at the hospital. We recommend that you use public transport or ask a friend to drop you off at the hospital. There is a taxi rank at the hospital, and you can book your  taxi journey home using the free telephones in the hospital.

The entrance to the King's site carpark is on Caldecot Road, off Coldharbour Lane. At peak times of day there may be a queue to enter and therefore you may have to wait until a car parking space is available.

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

Disabled drivers

There are marked parking spaces outside the Bessemer Road entrance for drivers who are registered disabled and have a blue badge. There is no charge for parking in these spaces.

If these spaces are in use, disabled drivers can use the main car park. However, they will be required to pay the usual fee.

Car parking charges

Car parking charges are charged per hour or part hour and they can be paid in cash only, prior to exiting the car park. There are two payment machines in the car park and there are also payment machines at the main entrance of Hambleden
