    I have been on the nationalrail site, and have seen a Honeybourne- Paddington ticket leaving at 8:01am for £38.

    On reading the terms and conditions, I am none the wiser about when I have to return before (i.e. what time is peak time)

    I am finding it hard to clarify this. Can someone enlighten me?
