Evening all,

Generally speaking I know the trains well...

But not these ones!

I need a week long ticket from Horsham to London Victoria return. However, I also need an underground journey in that from Victoria to South Kensington.

How do I go about buying those tickets? I know how to buy a week long ticket, but not with an underground journey in there too.

Any help would be appreciated!

If I understand you correctly, it's pretty simple. Just purchase the tickets for the tube separately @ Victoria station. As you're leaving the train platforms, look across the hall and you'll see an entrance to the Tube and next to it, a ticket office. In fact, as soon as you leave the platforms, you'll see multiple entrances and signs to the Underground nearby. South Kensington station is only 2 stops away from Victoria on either the Circle or District lines. Make sure you're heading in the right direction when you board though, but I'm sure you have common sense

You might as well get an oyster card while you're at it. You'll pay 4 quid for a one way to South Kensington. With an oyster card you'll pay £3 (£1.50 each way) for a return ticket. (The actual card costs £3 but is refundable upon return of the card)

Lol yeah I know the station pretty well, the trouble was getting the price down. I didn't express myself too well there, I know the trains well, and the underground, just not season tickets...Never had to buy one, unless you count my school train tickets.

I've got work experience at the Natural History Museum, which I've worked REALLY hard to get, and now I've got it. However, prices are proving problematic. I've been quoted £85 for a week ticket including tube journeys.

This is a ridiculous price.

My rail card doesn't work for season tickets either which is stupid.

I forgot about Oyster cards, oddly enough! I'll have a look into it, for £3 though, thats good. The discount though, it needs to be worth it...But I go to London quite regulary so it might work out cheaper.

I can get day travel cards for London zones 1-4 (even though I just need zone one) for £4, I know this 'cos I've done it before...But still, I reckon I can get it for less.

There is also the ever so slightly dishonest option of buying five return tickets at off peak times...Which works out at £50 + tube journeys.

I hate Southern service trains, they suck, they are stupid, over priced, and inefficient, they'd never survive in somewhere like Switzerland...

Like, only today, my train was delayed by half an hour...Because of flooding, then they changed their excuse that there was a signal failure (that basically means they are crap).

Thanks for the reply Nantes, I totally forgot about Oyster, I ought to get one anyway because I spend a fortune on transport.
