Gas mains replacement work

From May to September 2017, National Grid is preparing to replace and upgrade the old metal gas main along Fulham Road with new pipes made of more durable material.


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.


Numbers 14, 211, 345 and 414 stop outside the Fulham wing on Fulham Road.

Numbers 49 and 211 stop in Sydney Street for our main reception.

Parking for patients and visitors

There is no parking within Royal Brompton Hospital other than very limited pick up and drop off at Sydney Street. However there is metered, on-street parking.  In common with central London, street parking is very limited and not guaranteed. Please take this into account if you have an appointment. 

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:

  • Dovehouse Street
  • Dudmaston Mews (these spots are controlled by the council and not bookable through the Trust)
  • Cale Street
  • Foulis Terrace
  • in front of the main hospital entrance in Sydney Street. There are two bays here which are limited to four hours and cannot be reserved.

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 are separate to the disabled parking spaces in Dudmaston Mews).


These spaces can be reserved by calling 020 7351 8012 between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. Please do not use these spaces unless you have a reservation.

Parking spaces are only available to outpatients coming in for their appointments. Subject to availability, these five parking spaces in Dudmaston Mews, can be used by visitors after 4pm Monday to Friday.   Use of the five bays is  free of charge. Otherwise  Dudmaston Mews is a pay-and-display area on Saturdays and parking on Sundays is free.


Sydney Street


Unfortunately we are unable to offer any car parking within this part of the hospital. We aim to  accommodate a 15 minute drop off and collection at the main entrance subject to availability at the time of arrival;  there is no pre-booking.


There is street parking within the area.

Congestion charge


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


Hospital transport


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.


Read more on who can use hospital transport.


Assistance with travel costs


If you are a patient and you receive certain benefits, you may be able to claim back some or all of your travel costs. It is important that you bring proof of the benefits you receive with you to hospital.


Please read our guidance on claiming back travel fees to see if you are eligible and what you need to do to ensure we can help you with your claim.


If you qualify for a reimbursement, it is important that you bring with you one of the following:


  • a letter from the benefit office on suitably headed paper confirming receipt of a relevant benefit dated within 12 months of the date of attendance
  • a current NHS Tax Credits Exemption Certificate.
