Would you require tickets for the Underground?

You mention 'Central London' where abouts are you heading to?

The full price via Stroud is £220.45 and via Any Permitted route is £270.30!

To be honest, at that time in the morning it will be hard to get any really good prices.

It's possible to get to Reading via Worcester and Evesham for a sensible price in the morning (around £50), but once at Reading you're going to have to pay a heap more to come back in the peak. In fact, the best option from Reading is a Thames Branches Day Ranger, but that doesn't have a Family and Friends discount, so would be £43.75. See http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/times_fares/promotions/pr601e4c0a04000200f63dfe8f29a46f/details.html

Total cost would be around £95

Tickets are as follows (for 2 adults and 1 child). These are based on taking the 07.34 from Ashchurch, change at Worcester. You can take any train back (but it must go through Oxford and Worcester). Using these you would get into London at 11am and could choose to leave at 18.22 for connections home. Be aware that the service from Worcester to Ashchurch is infrequent when choosing trains home.

Fare £12.80

OXFORD to READING STATIONS

THAMES BRANCHES DAY RANGER

If you wish to go via Stroud, taking the 07.05 arriving 09.39 AND CHANGING AT READING FOR THE FIRST SERVICE AFTER 9.30am and returning on any train via Stroud, you could use the following set of tickets, which would cost £136. Remember that your trains must stop at Reading, Didcot and Swindon.

ASHCHURCH to SWINDON (WILTS)

Fare £34.90
Route VIA STROUD

SWINDON (WILTS) to DIDCOT PARKWAY

THAMES BRANCHES DAY RANGER

NOT VALID BEFORE 9.30am - you will have to change at Reading and wait for 9.30am
Your final option is to go via Birmingham, making use of the special offer that allows railcard holders to travel on peak Virgin trains using off peak tickets. You could catch the 06.20 from Ashchurch, change at Shrub Hill to get to New Street at 07.46. There are trains to Euston every 20 mins from there. Make sure your return train stops at Droitwich. Suitable tickets would cost £95.85 and be:

ASHCHURCH to DROITWICH SPA
ANYTIME DAY R
Fare £13.75
Route ANY PERMITTED

DROITWICH SPA to BIRMINGHAM STNS
ANYTIME DAY R
Fare £13.15
