Secure bike parking is located through the barrier to the Visitors’ Car Park and then down the slope on the left into the Radiotherapy Car Park.

By car

Because of the limited number of parking spaces available, we ask patients to consider coming to the Sutton hospital by public transport or taxi rather than by car. If you do wish to drive, follow these instructions:

Leave the M25 at Junction 8 and join the A217 to Sutton.

Continue for approximately eight miles until you reach a roundabout with a signpost for the B2230 Brighton Road to Sutton.

Take the first turning on the right into Downs Road. The turning is just after a small hump back bridge and immediately before the pedestrian crossing.

Continue over the crossroads. The Royal Marsden is the second turning on the left.


There is limited car parking space available for patients and visitors at our Sutton hospital. Parking is on a ‘pay on foot’ basis and charges are as follows:

  • Up to ½ hour: free

Parking fees for stays up to 24 hours can be paid for at the barrier on exiting the car park. The payment machines take coins, notes and credit cards. Weekly, monthly, 6-week and annual permits must be purchased from the control kiosk.

All car parking charges are reinvested back into our car parking services to ensure that patients and visitors benefit from a safe, secure and well maintained car park.

Security at our car parks is very important to us. In 2002, The Royal Marsden was one of the first hospitals to receive Park Mark® security accreditation from the Association of Chief Police Officers’ Safer Parking Scheme. We are the only NHS hospital to retain the award for nine successive years.
