We have very limited parking at the Hospital of St Cross. If you are coming to visit, please consider using public transport. 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.

A taxi is another option from the Station to The Bell Inn.
