Nestling in the water meadows alongside the River Itchen and in the shadow of St Catherine’s Hill lies the ancient Hospital of St Cross. Renowned for the tranquility of its setting and the beauty of its architecture, the Hospital is one of England’s oldest continuing almshouses.

PARKING – We have very limited parking at the Hospital of St Cross. If you are coming to visit, please consider using public transport http://hospitalofstcross.co.uk/contact-us/directions We are only a 20 minute walk or a 5 minute bus ride on the No1 Bluestar bus from the City centre. The bus stops conveniently at the end of our driveway. Our grassland parking areas are unfortunately not available between October and March.
