Hi I'm after some advice. I'm travelling from Waterloo to Kings Cross with a three month old in a pushchair. I'm partially sighted and would like some advice on how easy it is to do this. I've done this alone but have never done it with my little one. I'm not confident on escalators with her as I dont feel safe with her. Thank you in advance for your help

Taxi would be easiest if you could stretch to the fare - I guess it would be around £10-£15.
If that is too much then perhaps a bus would be better than the tube.

There's the 59 bus if you're looking for a cheaper option and want to avoid navigating busy stations with escalators and steps

Ask for assistance when you get to the platform at Waterloo station over one of those information point intercom things. I think they'll send a guard down to help you find the right platform. am pretty sure they do this at kings cross as its very close to the RNIB, so perhaps they are able to do it at all stations.
Otherwise, I'm sure another passenger will help you (as long as it's not rush hour), most people are actually very happy to lend a hand with buggies and stuff.

If you can avoid rush hour and take more time than you think you will need. Do you have to take a pram? A carrier is the easier option.

I do have a sling but need to take the pushchair. Can I get a taxi without a car seat? A bus or walk I think might be my best options if I can't get a taxi without a car seat.
