Charing Cross Hospital is located in the London borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. It was first set up in Villiers Street in 1823 and only became known as Charing Cross Hospital in 1827. Originally built in central London, it was moved after World War 2 to its present location. Today it provides a range of acute and specialised services as well as a 24/7 accident and emergency department. The hospital is also a key site for the teaching of medical students from Imperial College London. Whether you’re here visiting friends, family or in a professional capacity, you’ll find the hospital is near plenty of restaurants and pubs and is just a short walk from three tube stations which include Barons Court, Hammersmith, and West Kensington.
