Finding the right building
The hospital is based in four buildings, three of which (the Sydney, Chelsea and Britten wings) are based on the same site, accessible via the main reception on Sydney Street.
Fulham wing (for outpatients) is on a nearby site, five minutes’ walk from the main buildings, accessible from the Fulham Road. View a map of our wings. Read details for specific wards.
We are a five-to-ten-minute walk from South Kensington station, which is on the Circle, District and Piccadilly lines. Transport for London's tube map or the journey planner below, might both help in planning your journey.
For the main buildings: once you have exited the tube station’s main barriers, mount the stairs and take the left hand exit, cross the pedestrian crossings in front of you and walk down Onslow Place to the Fulham Road. Cross the road and 10 yards along to the right is the left-hand turn into Sydney Street. The hospital is on the right-hand side of the street.
For Fulham wing: follow the above instructions but once you reach the Fulham Road continue walking down it for 250 yards. Fulham wing is on the left side, just after The Royal Marsden hospital.
Buses serving the hospital are listed below. You can use TfL's journey planner, live bus arrivals and bus route maps online services to help plan your journey.

Parking for patients and visitors

There is a public car park three minutes' walk away on Sydney Street, near King's Road and managed by CP Plus Parking.
Parking for disabled badge holders
A small number of disabled parking spaces are available in Cale Street, Foulis Terrace, and in front of the main hospital entrance (Sydney wing). Remember to display your disabled badge.
Reserved parking for outpatients
We have five parking spaces in Dudmaston Mews, behind Fulham wing / South Block, available to reserve within two weeks of your outpatient appointment, subject to availability.
These spaces can be reserved by calling 020 7351 8012. Please do not use these spaces unless you have a reservation.
Visitors cannot reserve parking spaces as these are only available to outpatients coming in for their appointments. However, subject to availability on the day, these five parking spaces in Dudmaston Mews, can be used by visitors after 4pm Monday to Friday. Dudmaston Mews is a pay-and-display area on Saturdays and parking on Sundays is free.
Royal Brompton Hospital is not in the central London congestion charging zone. However, we advise you to check the Transport for London website to see if congestion charging will affect your journey to / from the hospital.

Help coming in
This is only available on strict medical grounds. If you are a patient and are medically unable to travel safely by public transport and friends or family are unable to bring you, your own doctor will make the appropriate arrangements.
When you arrive at the hospital, please let the receptionist know that you came by hospital transport when you arrive.
