Location & Transport

The main King’s site is based on Denmark Hill in south London. There is no general public car parking at the hospital but the public transport links are very good so we would encourage you to use the buses and trains.
The following information is to help you find your way to the Denmark Hill campus and to help you find your way around the hospital.

If you are planning to travel to King’s by road, please note that there is no longer general public car parking on site. We are in a residential area so have very few parking spaces close to the site. We encourage patients and visitors to use public transport, cycle, or to be dropped off at the hospital.
Drop off and Collection Zones
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.
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.
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 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.
