Should i buy train tix now or wait? (London-Newbury)

Jump to last reply

I have tickets to Highclere Castle for a Tuesday in July.
Since my dates are set, should I buy train tickets now or wait until I get to London or simply wait until the day we are going on our day-trip?
I know I need to take a train from Paddington Station to Newbury Station (and then a taxi to HC) but just wondering whether I need to bother with online tickets. It looks like I'd have to go to a kiosk to pick up tix and show my cc even if I purchase online.
Also - should I use First Great Western or NationalRail site?
Tickets seem to currently be about $100 for 1 adult, 1 child.
I must admit I find the return ticket wording confusing!
I'd like to leave London around 1100 and leave Newbury around 1700.
Thank you.
