Taxis readily available at Kings Cross rail station?

We will be arriving from Scotland on the 8th of May (during the Tube strike). Is there a place to pick up a taxi right at the station? Do they line up for picking up arriving passengers, or do we need to go hunting to find one? I am assuming that hailing a taxi will be more difficult due to the strike, so just want to be prepared by having a plan in place.

Thanks.

The taxi rank is on Pancras Road, on the top left of the station plan below.

Where do you need to get to from Kings Cross? And also remember to check the news and Transport for London for news about the strike.

Follow the signs for taxis - there is a taxi rank with a well-organised queue. It will be super-busy on strike day but taxis will be constantly making their way back there. A long wait might be less stressful than trying to flag one down!

Thanks. We are staying at the London Hilton on Park Lane, and will have luggage, so we won't want to drag them around very far. We will look for the taxi queue, and happily wait our turn.

You can get Addison Lee to meet you opposite the station as soon as you arrive to avoid the taxi queue, and once you've factored in traffic during the tube strike, they won't be any more expensive.

From what I've seen from previous strikes, you will likely find very long queues for taxis.
