London Daytrips (Oxford, Dover) -- flexibility with train tickets

Jump to last reply

We will be spending just over a week in London at the end of the month and would like to consider some day trips while maintaining as much flexibility as possible. There will be 6 of us in total (2 kids, 2 parents (us), 2 grandparents) and we have a Friends & Family railcard though that doesn't appear necessary.

Two options for daytrips of interest will be Oxford and Dover. It appears from playing around with the www.nationalrail.co.uk site, that I can get GroupSave tickets for £47 for Oxford and £75 for Dover (price is for all of us). The price is the same for tomorrow or in 3 weeks time.

Any idea what the walk-up fair is or how to find out? I'd like to know if I need to buy them ahead of time (even if only a day before). We'd like to keep our options open for weather and group mood if possible.

Thanks.
