Need Typical Wait Time for Taxi at Euston Rail Station

We plan to arrive at Euston at 11:43 on a Saturday in July. We need to travel to Sanctuary House Hotel near the St. James's Park Underground. We will be quite loaded down with suitcases. I know that one can take the underground route in about 17 minutes and we travelled this underground route several years ago--without bags. Is there typically a long line up at the taxi stand on a Saturday?

Not done it on a Saturday but I doubt it will be more than 5 minutes wait its not exactly peak time and you'd typically have fewer people wanting taxis as there are going to be very few business people on expenses getting them. Because of that taxis will also be down, but they will turn up because they will know what it's like typically.

Head towards platform 18 and exit the station there, taxis enter/exit there so no line.

Thank-you. I have pasted the Platform 18 instructions into my itinerary.

I've never had to wait more than 10 minutes so I'd recommend you just go to the taxi rank.

Is the taxi rank at the exit near platform 8?
