I'm thinking it would be a nice change to do several day trips by train during my upcoming month in London. Maybe a 4-day Flexipass or similar? I don't want to do them on consecutive days. I know one trip will be to Plumpton, in Sussex, to the race course.
Does anyone have any experience here, or advice of any sort? I'm looking for the most cost-effective, most flexible arrangements possible.
Can my Oyster Travelcard apply to these trips in any way?
Are there any discount codes currently around that would apply?
Should I look at BritRail or would I do better to look at various train companies separately?
How about if I just want to ride the rails all day, getting off at different stops for morning coffee, lunch, afternoon tea, then home?
Any tips are welcome!
