Getting to the venue
There is no public parking at the hospital itself so we encourage participants not to travel by car wherever this is possible. If you do need to drive there is a multi-storey car park close to the hospital on West Smithfield which is run by the City of London.
The drop-off and pick-up point is in the Square, accessed via King Henry VIII Gate on Giltspur Street or the hospital entrance on Little Britain.
St Bartholomew's Hospital is situated within the congestion charging zone. All patients/visitors who drive to the hospital are therefore required to pay the charge, although there are some exemptions and discounts. A full list of categories of drivers/vehicles eligible for exemptions and details of how to pay the charge can be found on the Transport for London congestion charging website. To qualify for an exemption or discount you must register with Transport for London.
The nearest National Rail stations are Blackfriars, Cannon Street, City Thameslink and Farringdon. All are located within walking distance of the hospital. Liverpool Street station is a short tube, bus or taxi ride away.
The closest tube stations are Barbican, Blackfriars, Farringdon and St Paul's all are between 5-10 minutes’ walk. Barbican and Farringdon are served by the Hammersmith and City line, Metropolitan line and Circle line. Blackfriars is served by the Circle line and District line. St Paul's is served by the Central Line. If coming from St Pauls the closest entrance will be the Little Britain entrance marked on the map and for all other underground stations the closest will be the Henry VIII entrance.
The following buses stop outside or close to the hospital: numbers 4, 8, 25, 56, 172 and 242. Low-floor wheelchair accessible buses run on all routes serving St Bartholomew's.
