Are National Rail tickets valid on the London Underground?
(UK train travel)
Hi. This weekend I plan on travelling from a station in my town in Greater London (Town A) to a station in a town outside Greater London (Town B). The journey involves a few interchanges, including a Tube journey in the middle. Obviously I can’t use my Oyster Card the whole way so I’d need to buy one of those orange-edged paper train tickets to eventually reach Town B.
I was thinking of buying an off-peak return paper ticket that goes from Town A to Town B. But I’m not 100% sure if this ticket also includes Tube journeys as well? The fact that the National Rail website suggests this particular route with the Tube journey must mean yes, does it? And the machines any stations apart from my final destination station won’t swallow up my ticket, will they?
Can people please confirm this to me please, or otherwise suggest a better alternative? That would be very helpful, thanks :)
