Travel Times

How much time should I allow [ via private car] to transfer from Euston train station to LCY?
Thanks for the help.

Google Maps give a reliable estimate of travel time with traffic, both for now and at a specific time in the future.

It suggests around 40 minutes right now, or 28-65 minutes at 11.00 on a Saturday, I think you'd be unlucky to take 65 minutes, but it is possible. Don't forget to add the time to locate your driver and where they have parked. I'm not sure where at Euston they would pick up.

Presumably you are heading to a hotel somewhere nearby? The last departure from LCY on a Saturday is a few minutes after noon, which you have zero chance of making.

Almost zero. With a 28 minute journey, arriving at, say, 1140. 15 minute check-in. Job done!

My bad. rcspeirs is probably correct. The travel date is on a Friday.

The journey by Northern Line and DLR will be quicker - about a half hour. However, if you have big luggage, the change at Bank is unpleasant.
