and N47. Visit the buses section of the Transport for
London website for more information about bus services in
The nearest rail station to the Hospital is Ladywell
Station, which is on the Charing Cross to Hayes line and
can also be reached via Waterloo East and London Bridge stations.
The Hospital is sign posted from Ladywell Station and is about 5-10
minutes walk away. Lewisham Station (main line and
Docklands Light Railway) is approximately 20 minutes away by foot
and a short bus ride away.
The limited amount of car parking space on the Hospital
site has always been a concern as demand has always
outstripped supply. As a result, we advise people travelling by car
to allow plenty of time to find a space. Following patient
feedback, drivers now pay for parking when exiting the site,
so that they no longer have to estimate how long their
stay on site might be.
Please note: The main entrance for vehicles changed in
November 2010 and patient and visitor parking in no longer accessed
via Albacore Crescent.

entrance and parking information >>
By Bike or Foot
If you are able, the healthiest option is to travel
to the Hospital under your own power, by bike or by foot.
For cyclists, there are a number of covered cycle
racks where you can lock your bike with some protection
from the elements. Lewisham Council provides information on
local cycle routes. By foot, there are a range of routes
to reach the hospital, including signposted footpaths giving a
shortcut from Ladywell Station.
