We strongly recommend that patients and visitors use public transport to get to the hospital. The Trust is well served by both buses and trains.
Travelling by train
The nearest station to Kingston Hospital is Norbiton. The hospital is around 0.3 miles from the station along Coombe Road or Wolverton Avenue. This is a 5 to 10-minute walk for most people.
Norbiton Station is served by South Western Railway and receives regular services into and out of London Waterloo. Services to Norbiton run on the Kingston Loop and the Shepperton line.
For further information about train times and fares, please see the National Rail Enquiries website or telephone 08457 48 49 50.
Travelling by bus
Kingston Hospital is served by a number of bus routes. Low-floor, wheelchair accessible buses run on all the routes serving the hospital. You can see a map showing the bus routes which serve the hospital and the buses’ point of origin/destination by clicking on the button below.
Cromwell Road bus station in Kingston is closed until summer 2024, while a major redevelopment is completed. This will affect certain bus stops and routes to and from Kingston Hospital.
Buses will not stop at the bus station and some buses which normally stop in the bus station or Cromwell Road will serve temporary stops, be diverted or stop short of their normal destinations. If you are travelling on one of the following buses – 111, 216, 411, 285, 481 – these will terminate at Wood Street (John Lewis) in Kingston town centre.
To get to the hospital, passengers will need to catch the 281 bus from Wood Street (John Lewis) to the temporary stops on Cromwell Road, or walk to Eden Street, to catch the K2 or K4 bus.
There are bicycle storage facilities where visitors can secure their bikes. The hospital appears on the free Transport for London Cycle Guides for areas 9 and 10.

There is parking available on site for motor cycles which is free of charge as long as you park in the designated areas by the Royal Eye Unit or next to the sheltered bicycle rack to the right of the Hospital’s Main Entrance.

The Trust is within the expanded Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ). This means if your vehicle does not meet the ULEZ emissions standards, you will need to pay a daily charge to drive within the ULEZ. You can find out more, including whether your vehicle meets ULEZ standards, on the TfL website.
As an NHS patient, you may be able to claim a reimbursement for the ULEZ charge if you are clinically assessed as unable to travel to and from an appointment on public transport and:
Have a compromised immune system, or
Require regular therapy or assessments, or
Need regular surgical intervention.
If you believe that you meet the above criteria, mention this at the reception desk when you book in for your appointment. If you use an automated check in for your appointment, please mention it to the clinician at the start of your appointment. They will then carry out your assessment, using this form. Printed copies of this form will be available for you at the hospital.
