    St. Pancras (Kings Cross??) to Euston with a pushchair

    Am going to see a a friend in london on friday. i get into St. Pancras International which is kind of kings cross? not sure. anyways i need to meet another friend at euston so we can share a cab to our friends place.

    Is it pushchair friendly ...or is my best bet to walk...how easy/far is the walk. its one stop but if its freezing cold id rather tube it..but then i dont wana use escelators with my pushchair.

    any advice/tips be really appreciated

    TIA

    As you arrive at St Pancras, turn right out of the main entrance and walk up Euston Road, about 5/8 minutes walk with pushchair. Not worth the hassle for the tube.
    Of course you could grab a cab from St Pancras to Euston then onwards to your friends place put about £4 on top of the original fare.

    Definitely walk, only a few minutes away really.

    Will take 7 or 8 minutes maximum. Couple of traffic light crossroads to go though, but nothing apart from a few curbs!

    aww thanks for the replies.

    so a solid 10 minute walk. thanks for google maps. was struggling googling the answer. so decided to look up 'stepfree' access and it says euston doesnt have it. St panc does.... so i cba with the hassele..meant to be raining on firday so will take daughters rain cover....and a bin liner for me! haha

    the cab idea is good..but my friend is coming from brum with her young daughter...so i doubt she be outside ready to leave on time. best is to be together and get one of those big cabs.... so we can get our pushchairs in!

    seriously thanks guys x

    MAke your friend come to you instead.



    she has a pushchair herself and euston is slightly nearer to the friend whose house we are going to. she will drop us off but shes a bit worried where to pick us up from as we dont know london very well. so best we cab to hers. last time i cabbed there and back from st pancras and spent 20 quid! plus the 18quid to get to st panc from where i live!

    The escalator is only if you use the tube. Walking from SP to Euston will be fine. If you walk very slowly it might take you 10 minutes.

    MB when are you going?

    Im at Euston tomorrow so can make 100% sure of the front of the station. Im fairly sure its sound. There definately isnt a flight of stairs directly from the front, though maybe there is a couple of steps. And unless your taxi climbs the steps youd be no better off anyway.

    Seriously, its about half a mile (800 yards).........

    I'll try to remember tomorrow and take a peak. As I said though, in the time it takes to wait for a cab, load up, travel, get out... it will probably be quicker to walk + you are still no better off as far as steps are concerned. (I'm still convinced if you take the central entrance by the tube escalator, there are no steps.)

    MB....

    Just to confirm.....you CAN enter Euston station without any steps to climb. Just carry on walking down Euston road until you see a set of traffic lights where the busses turn round. (you will see a normal road busses use before this turning..... But i am talking about a clear bus turn around.) in front you will see a big To Let sign... Head for that. The ramp is too the right of that sign.

    Easy peasy. Dont waste your money on a cab. Itll be just as quick to walk.....and its a straight road.

    Have fun

    ps i took some phone pics if it still dounds confusing!

    thanks again.

    Why are you talking about using tube escalators at SP and Euston and walking between them! Oh well - as long as you understand, alls well.
