PARKING – Unfortunately, we have very limited parking at the Hospital of St Cross but we are only a lovely 20 minute walk, or a 5 minute bus ride on the No1 Bluestar bus, from the City centre. The bus stops very conveniently at the end of our driveway, called ‘The Gravels’. When visiting, please consider using public transport https://hospitalofstcross.co.uk/contact-us/directions  Our grassland parking areas are available between April and October (subject to non boggy conditions)

LIMITED ACCESS – Please check our ‘What’s On’ page to see if any events are being held onsite, on the day of your visit.  It may be there is limited access or closure to some areas of the Hospital and we would hate you to be disappointed.

You are welcome to enjoy our stunning medieval site and gardens, and refresh with a beverage and a cake in our friendly tearooms.
