Marylebone Station to St Pancras Internationalhi everyone,
on Sunday 30th December my husband and I will be arriving at Marylebone station from Aylesbury and will then need to get to St Pancras International to catch our booked Eurostar train to Paris. Looking at the various underground routers, and then comparing directions on Google Maps, it looks to me like taking a taxi is probably going to be the easiest way to do this, and by the look of the distance, probably not that costly.
Can anyone comment? Would appreciate some advise on this one. :)

1Sorry - I should have said, this is in London, although I suspect that is in fact obvious. :)

3And Marylebone to Baker Street is so close you can walk it in about 5 minutes if you have little baggage. Also if you have little baggage walk to the Euston Road where there are loads of buses that go to St Pancras.
But the 'obvious' solution surely is that trains from Aylesbury stop at Harrow on the Hill. Change there onto the Met Line - and at certain times of the day (not Sundays) there are through trains to the City via St Pancras. Otherwise change to the Circle/District line at Baker Steet

4Taxis in London are always expensive - though very good (roomy, clean with drivers who know where they're going). Especially on Sundays and at holiday times. Use only if you've got a lot of luggage and money, otherwise follow one of the other posters' advice.

5Tube from Harrow on the Hill go to St Kings Cross on a Sunday (when there are no enginerring works on the Circle line), so this would be your easiest change. You can wlak to Baker Street very easily, or Bakerloo line to Baker Street and then Circle/Hammersmith & city ir Met line to Kings X. Whichever way you go you'll have to go up (and possibly down) a flight of stairs.

All of the above are correct. However, TfL has not yet release the engineering work schedule for the Christmas to New Year period.
There is a bus - route 205 from Paddington to Mile End via Marylebone and St Pancras & Kings Cross. You can take this bus which stops in front of Marylebone station or you can walk to Baker Street station to get the Circle/Metropolitan/Hammersmith & City Line.
The bus fare is £2, or £0.90 if you have Oyster Card.

7No6 uses the answer we would use when we change at Marylebone for St P, Kings X or Euston. Changing at Harrow for the Tube is too slow.
I agree that you must check re engineering works. Very common both on Chiltern's Wycombe and Amersham routes from Aylesbury routes at weekends this year though not generally at the same time.

9Taxi's not much quicker than the tube either, though it's likely to be quicker on a Sunday. The real determinant for me is luggage. If you have light luggage, I'd take the tube to Baker Street and change for the Circle/Hammersmith&City/Metropolitan line to Kings Cross. If you have heavy luggage, take a taxi.

10Wot #7 said, refer to CT's website for details of engineering works, could force you to drive to Amersham and pick up the metropolitan line and do it that way instead.
www.transportdirect.com says that the easiest way to do it is to either
a) take the bakerloo from Marylebone to Baker St, change for the Metropolitan to St Pancras
b) Get off at harrow on the hill, take the metropolitan.
As ppl have pointed out earlier. Alternatively, if you don't do station changes, drive to Amersham and pick up the metropolitan from there but this would be more hassle.
It pretty much is 6 of one and half a dozen of the other. The eurostar is amazing though - a friend of mine is in the rail industry and has had a sneak preview of the new station and its capabilities and raves about it.
