Best route from County Hall Marriott to the Eurostar to Paris

On Wed 18th Jun 2008, we will leave the County Hall Marriott for a train to Paris which departs at 11:05am. We will have most likely two large suitcases and two carryons (that I can attach to our large suitcases). What do you recommend as the best and easiest route to take to the Eurostar station)? (least amount of stairs, walking, etc.) THANKS!

Definitely a taxi for least amount of stairs and walking.

If you want to take the tube, you could walk across the bridge to Westminster station and ride the Circle line all the way around to St Pancras - it will take some time but there wouldn't be any line changes. But I agree - a taxi will be easier.

A minicab would be cheaper than a taxi. These are possibilities to ask for quotes:

The circle line route isn't at all bad, as there is step free access at both ends.

If you end up walking across the bridge to the Tube stop there will most definitely be STEPS; there are steps as you come OUT of the Marriott for that matter.

if we take the tube - any idea about how long it will take? I need to know when to leave our hotel to get to the eurostar station on time.

AND - if we take a taxi - any clue about how much it might cost?

Timing - Circle Line can have odd service gaps. I'd aim to leave the hotel around 0915 whichever route you choose.

As far as timing for the tube is concerned, you can go to the "journey planner" section of the tube's website. you can punch in your itinerary, day & time of your travels, and it'll tell you how long it takes (and the best route).
