Euston Square station - is it within easy walking distance from Euston overground station

My wife and are are planning to travel by Easybus from Stansted Airport to Baker Street tube station, from where we have to get to Euston overground station.

I have looked at the tube map and notice that there is a direct connection between Baker Street and Euston Square tube station, but not to Euston overground.

If we were to take the tube to Euston Square, how difficult would it be to walk to Euston overground station, bearing in mind we will each have a suitcase to pull along.

Why not get the bus from Baker Street to Euston - takes 10-15 minutes.

See the TfL Journeyplanner for times, bus numbers & maps

Assuming of course Euston station is where you are going and not somewhere in the Euston area

I do it regularly, but in the opposite direction.
I'm in my late 60s and find it a very easy walk even with a suitcase.
It's well signposted.

With two suitcases, you might be a bit de trop on an ordinary bus - but it all depends on the time of day and how crowded they are. If there's room, that would save you a bit of effort on stairs and the like.

Euston Square to Euston mainline requires you to cross the main road (at the traffic lights) and (I think) walk up a couple of steps on the Melton Road entrance:

Thank you all for your advice.

As we will be travelling between Baker Street and Euston stations at about 9pm the bus might be the best option. I will check out the Tfl Journeyplanner as suggested by AlanRow.

Thanks once again.
