- Britten Wing.
Each building is located within the same site, accessible via the main reception on Sydney Street, SW3 6NP.
For private outpatients, go to Britten Wing, opposite the main entrance. Look for signage that says 'Private consulting rooms'.
For private inpatients, ask at the main reception in Sydney Wing to be directed to the private inpatients' reception.

Parking for patients and visitors
There is no patient or public parking at Royal Brompton Hospital other than a very limited pickup and drop off area at Sydney Street. There is metered, on-street parking, but in central London street parking is very limited and not guaranteed. This is worth noting if you have an appointment.
There is a small public car park a few minutes' walk away on Sydney Street, near King's Road and managed by CP Plus Parking:
Sydney Street Car Park
125 Sydney St
