Puzzling through rail options

Jump to last reply

Thank you for reading this. We are a family of four (one 60+, one adult and two children under age 15). I'm trying to decide the best rail options for us, but I'm not making much progress.

I thought a Family & Friends railcard made sense, but it's not valid wholly within London or during peak weekday times (before 10am) in London or South East. So, looking at this schedule, would you recommend a Travelcard, plus a Family & Friends railcard, plus one (or maybe two, I'm not sure) regional railcards?

We'll be traveling a total of 7 days (only 5 consecutive, though).

Day 1
Heathrow --> London (Nat. Hist. Museum)
London --> Purley

Day 2
Purley --> London (Tower, Dungeon)
London --> Purley

Day 3
Purley --> London, Great Portland stop (day tour for Stonehenge)
London --> Purley

Day 4
Purley --> London (Buckingham Palace, Mews, Big Ben, Parliament, London Eye)
London --> Purley

Day 5
Purley --> London
London --> Kings Cross/St. Pancreas (Eurostar tickets, already purchased)

Day 11
Leeds --> Nottingham? not sure but eventually --> LHR-area hotel

Day 12
Hoppa bus from hotel to LHR

Help ... thank you.
