Directions to St Mary The Boltons
The Church is located in the middle of The Boltons, and can be reached by car, bus and underground.
If driving down Redcliffe Gardens, which is one way,turn into Tregunter Road and drive to the junction with The Boltons. The church will be on your left as you turn into the Boltons one way system. Otherwise drive down the Old Brompton Road until you reach the traffic lights at The Boltons. You should drive three quarters of the way round the one way system to park close to the front door and main entrance. On Sundays there is free/unrestricted parking in The Boltons and nearby streets. On most other days there is residents’ parking and a few metered bays, mostly at the Old Brompton Road end of The Boltons, or at the junction with Tregunter Road. Be aware that in the football season when Chelsea FC have a home game the volume of traffic is greatly increased and some access may be restricted (usually on the Fulham Road if driving from Fulham Broadway). Parking is also more difficult on match days. The nearest covered (paying) car park is at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital off the Fulham Road.
