If you wish to drive to the hospital, there is both multi-storey and on-street parking available.

Parking is in high demand, particularly during busy weekday periods. Therefore, please give yourself plenty of time to park and get to your destination. You may wish to consider using public transport if you are planning to visit during these times. Read more about getting here by bus, train or bike

Multi-storey car park

The car park is located on Eccles Street. Coming from Dorset Street, it is on the right hand side. Coming from Berkekely Road it is on the left hand side. Look for the Euro Car Park sign.

The car park has 440 spaces - please note the car park can get full during busy periods. 

There are two exits from the car park into the hospital:

  • If you are going to the Emergency Department please follow the red signs for Emergency Department.
