Getting to Kings...in a hurry

Recommended Posts

Mrs phillyboy is due in a few weeks time and we are trying to work out the best way of getting to Kings. Does anyone have any experience of using local taxi firms to east dulwich?Driving our car isn't really an option as parking is, i suspect, an absolute nightmare.

Apparently a lot of babies are born at night- mine all were, so parking turned out to be ok- the earliest was 9pm, and the car park was almost empty. It's also cheaper at night, not sure from what time, but I'm sure it was some kind of one off fee for the night rather than per hour. But you'd have to check!

We used Addison Lee. Arrived really quickly, lovely driver who went slow over the speed bumps and dropped us off right at the steps of the Golden Jubilee wing. Highly recommended. Parking at King's is a nightmare and once you reach the labour ward you may find the last thing you want to be worrying about is when to go and move the car.

By the time I went to Kings, I was in such mooing-like-cow agony, that I would have been soooo embarrassed to have had to make that journey in a taxi. I was embarrassed enough to be having contractions from the carpark to the labour ward, let alone in someone else's car!!! My advice: if you're going to taxi it, do it before the going gets tough!

You can park on McNeil road just off camberwell grove. There's a little walkway just opposite which leads you directly to denmark hill train station. It'll only take 5 min to do the walk


We're planning on driving there first time with Dad-to-be then moving the car to McNeil Road AFTER i've been accepted by the hospital


There's a baby boom right now and the staff are turning people away if you're not properly 'in labour' (i think no earlier than 5cm dilated now)

The taxi fares and/or parking costs can really add up if you keep being turned away...

    • That is horrific.  I can't even believe that this a thing.  Really what planet do these so called humans live on...    It actually says that the little fluff balls will be gassed.    It should be illegal.  At least one person took the time to read the letter.   I am shocked.
    • Looking for some advice here! Our little one is sleeping, finally, but still gets upset when going to bed or waking up. Has anyone tried one of the star/galaxy projectors you can get for them at night, and does it distract and sooth them enough to send them to sleep? Recommendations are very welcome here, as there are many different options online, from the suspiciously cheap to eye wateringly expensive. Is it a case of you get what you pay for? Advice gratefully received! LL
    • Wouldn't it be better to have a stall at North Cross Road market with a board explaining what they do rather than obstructing the pavement by "explaining" to people what they do one by one?
    • PETA are on to it,  makes horrendous reading, thanks for bringing it to our attention.💔
