The Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital is located just south of Grimsby town centre in the Scartho area. There are plenty of buses that stop off at the hospital and we are just a short taxi ride (5-10 mins) from Grimsby town railway station.

The purpose of this survey is to collect information about how visitors to NLAG hospitals access the sites in order to inform the new revision of the NLAG Travel Plan, which aims to promote more sustainable travel choices for NLAG employees and visitors.
If you are dropping someone off at the hospital we have allocated spaces where you can do this, there are three just outside the main entrance and one outside of day surgery. Please note these are 10 minute only drop-off zones.
By public transport
As there is limited parking on site we encourage our staff, patients and visitors to use public transport where possible to help ease congestion.
We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and promoting sustainable modes of transport. We provide dedicated cycle and motorcycle parking areas for members of the public to use. These are located by the main entrance.
The hospital is about half an hour’s drive from Humberside International Airport. Turn right out of the airport and continue on the A18 until the A46 turn-off towards Grimsby. Alternatively, turn left out of the airport and follow the signs for the A180 towards Grimsby.
