A couple of questions on UK train tickets

Jump to last reply

I am trying to work out whether I can get over to the UK for my Aunt's funeral.

My usual route, fly to LHR and cadge a lift with my brother isn't an option this time so I am looking at flying to Birmingham and getting the train to Leamington Spa where the funeral is.
I'd need to stay a couple of nights somewhere due to the timing of it all, probably at BHX so I can fly in late and out early.
If I buy an any time return from BHX to Leamington can I only use it on the trains I specify online when buying the ticket or is it good for all trains that day? Since I don't know how long events are going to last I don't want to commit to a particular time of train, only to find myself leaving early, or worse at a loose end in Leamington.
Is it even worth buying a ticket online or will it cost the same at the airport for such a short journey?
