Astonishing Science. Spectacular museum.
Getting your group to the Science Museum
Coaches can drop off on Exhibition Road just north of the Science Museum, or on Queens Gate which runs parallel to Exhibition Road to the west of the Museum.
There’s no coach parking at the Museum so advise your coach company that they will need to make alternative parking arrangements. Transport for London’s interactive map may help you find the nearest parking area.
We have parking for one minibus adjacent to the Group Entrance, available to book on a first come first serve basis for groups requiring easy access into the Museum. Please tell us if you wish to use the minibus bay when you make your visit booking with us. If this bay is not available there are normally two parking spaces for disabled badge holders, opposite the main entrance of the Museum but these are currently affected by the redevelopment works. These belong to the RBKC Borough Council and cannot be pre-booked.
The nearest tube station South Kensington is a ten minute walk away and has access to the Circle, District and Piccadilly lines. Gloucester Road tube station is a 15 minute walk away and is based on the Circle, District and Piccadilly lines.
From South Kensington Tube please use the pedestrian tunnel from the station ticket hall. Walk the full length of the tunnel then turn left as you exit onto Exhibition Road. Take the first left into Imperial College Road and the Group Entrance is about 50m along on the left.
