train from Edinburgh

We will be travelling from Edinburgh to London by train. From what I can see, the train will go to the King Cross Station. What is the best way to then get to the Victoria Station? This is our first trip to the UK and we are not familiar with the train/bus/underground system so any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Victoria line tube 5 stops to Victoria. Easy peasy with the proviso that there will be escalators and some steps so a taxi might be easier if you have a fair amount of luggage. Where exactly do you need to get to?

Underground would be your best option with a direct connection via the Victoria Line from Kings Cross Underground Station.

take the tube.

Once you use it, hopefully you will like it.

Indeed. Could make a difference. if it's a hotel, remember that hotels are known to play a little fast and loose with their location descriptions.

Also depends on what time you arrive in Kings Cross. If you have a lot of luggage and its peak time, the tube could be a bit daunting if you have never been to London before.
