Early Morning Transit

We need to get to Kings Cross for a 6:15 train in a couple weeks. We are staying in the Covent Garden area. Any ideas on how to best get there? I assume a taxi will be the only option, but thought I would see if there are other ideas.

At that time of day, I would use a taxi. You can use the tube but it is not worth the extra time.

You are too early to rely on the Tube and comfortably find your platform and make your train. The first northbound Piccadilly Line train from Covent Garden is at 05:53 and the next 10 minutes later. It is only a 5 minute ride but you'd need to be on only the first.

As suggested by others, walk, bus or taxi.

It does make a difference where in the Covent Garden area you are - it is a large area.

Are you heading north towards York or Edinburgh?

That early in the morning there shouldn't be much congestion on the roads so a bus will be fine. Depending on where in Covent Garden you are, you can walk to either Aldwych or Charing Cross Road for buses to Kings Cross.
