If you are planning to travel to King’s by road, please note that we are in a residential area so have very few parking spaces at or close to the site. We encourage patients and visitors to use public transport, cycle, or to be dropped off at the hospital.

Short-term parking

There are a small number of short-term parking spaces where you can drop off and collect patients outside the Golden Jubilee Wing and Hambleden Wing.

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.


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.


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