You can also use these routes to travel to King’s from our nearest London Underground stations: Oval, Brixton and Elephant & Castle.
The hospital is about a five-minute walk from Denmark Hill train station. The station is served by regular, direct rail links to central London at Blackfriars, Victoria and St Pancras International as well as to principal stops in south-east London such as Bromley South, Catford, Lewisham and Peckham Rye. It is also on the London Overground route with trains running between Highbury and Islington and Clapham Junction via Surrey Quays stopping at the station.
The hospital is about a 12-minute walk from Loughborough Junction, on Coldharbour Lane. The station is served by trains to London Bridge, St Pancras International, Wimbledon and Elephant & Castle. Bus routes 35, 45 and 345 run from the station to the hospital.
There are no Tube stations in Denmark Hill. Travel to the nearest ones at Oval, Brixton or Elephant & Castle and complete your journey by bus (see above for routes).
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.
The approach to the car park is made via Coldharbour Lane. Turn into Caldecot Road, then right into Bessemer Road and right again into Cutcombe Road. At peak times of the day you may have to queue to enter the car park and wait until a space is free.
There is a taxi rank outside the main entrance and free phones to book cabs at the main entrance or the entrance to the Golden Jubilee Wing.
