A cycle path joins the Royal's ground with Wetlands Lane (next to car park 7). This path offers safer access to the town and further-a-field via quiet lanes and bridle paths. A marked, shared pedestrian and cycle route is located at the front of the hospital providing safer access for cycllists joining the main road from the hospital site and cycle parks outside the main and visitors entrances.

The trust has several measures in place to encourage staff to cycle to work - if you require further information please contact Sally Luddit, telephone (01246) 512621.

Going to hospital can be a stressful experience and with limited space, high demand and parking charges, using the car to get there can be an extra pressure.

So using public transport makes sense.

It's convenient, great value and takes the strain out of your journey. You don't have to worry about finding somewhere to park or dashing back to put more money in the meter. And you're leaving the parking spaces free for people who have no choice but to travel by car.

The hospital is well served by public transport and may of the services are direct. Click here where you will find live bus departure times, route planner and the ability to search for bus time tables. 

Patients can use a a bus pass to travel to hospital with an appointment letter before 9.30am.
