Short answer is no. Maidenhead is well beyond the Transport for London zones. tfl.gov.uk/cdn/static/cms/documents/london-r…

Thanks for that TravellerPlus - I will be staying at Maidenhead so I guess there is no need to purchase a London Transport Day Pass.

Depending on your circumstances (how long you'll be staying in Maidenhead and how often you'll be visiting London and at what times) you may still be able to buy one day or seven day travelcards for use from Maidenhead. The one day cards give you one same day return (one journey each way) between Maidenhead and the edge of the travelcard zones and then unlimited travel within the travel zones (1-6).

So let us know more about your plans and we can help further.

One day off peak (after 9.30am) Travelcards will be the business. Cost will be £15.40 per person and these tickets can be used on the various 2for1 offers to be found here - tripadvisor.com/Travel-g186338-c195600/Londo…

Thanks for the info.

You can buy one day off peak travelcards for £15.40, valid for the 9.19am (arrives Paddington 10.04am) or later trains (on weekdays, weekends and bank holidays are off peak at all times). Given that the off peak day return is £11.20, train only excluding public transport in London, I'd go for the travelcard.

If you want to travel during peak hours you'd be paying £26.80 for the travelcard and £20.80 for the anytime return train fare only to Paddington. Which again would most likely (though not 100% guaranteed) make the travelcard the better option.

You can buy those travelcards on the day at Maidenhead. And, as they are sold on National Rail ticket stock you'd qualify for the 2 for 1 offers from www.daysoutguide.co.uk
