By Foot

We are 1 minute's walk from Kingston's ancient Marketplace, opposite the Guildhall and the Police Station.
From the Train Station it's a pleasant 10-12 minute stroll. Starting from the train station cross the one-way system and walk down Fife Road - you'll reach the side of the Bentall Centre. Walk left then right  round to the Bentall Centre's main entrance, then cross pedestrianised Clarence St into Memorial Square. Walk past 'Accessorise' on your left handside and into the Marketplace. Continue on through the market place and over the Clattern Bridge at the far end, along the High Street to the Rose.

By Car

Kingston town centre is largely pedestrianised. A one way system is in operation in Kingston and this can be extremely busy during peak traffic periods. Please leave yourself plenty of time when driving to the Rose Theatre. The nearest parking is the Rose Car Park which is open until midnight, the entrance to which is on East Lane (KT1 2NN). As the Rose is a new building and not yet recognised by older Satnav systems, those not wishing to park should using the following postcode: KT1 1LB (Kingston Police Station).

UPDATE - Due to refurbishment, the Rose Car Park is only available Thursday to Saturday until the 27th July and closed completely from the 28th July for approx 5 weeks.  During these times the offer will be valid on car park tickets from the Bittoms Car Park.
