Any assistance would be greatly appreciated please.

Kings Lynn super off peak travelcard with a network railcard is £21.05. Are you allowed to use this ticket from a London station as your origin station? Also does it allow break of journey along the Great Northern route?

Many thanks in advance.

It's valid on weekends only, but there are no time restrictions on weekends.

It's valid for one journey to the boundary of Zone 6, unlimited travel within Zones 1-6 on all services that accept Travelcards, and one journey from the boundary of Zone 6 to Kings Lynn.

Break of journey is valid on all rail fares unless explicitly stated and made clear at the time you buy the ticket; such a restriction is very rare for any walk-up ticket and there is certainly no such restriction on this fare.

Thank you very much. So can I start my journey from a London station rather than Kings Lynn then return to London?

Once you reach Kings Lynn, the ticket has no validity between Zone 6 and Kings Lynn in either direction. A new ticket would need to be purchased from Kings Lynn to the boundary of Zone 6 in order to use the ticket within Zones 1-6 again.

Depending on what journeys you are making, you may be better off with an in-boundary Travelcard and an extension fare from Boundary Zone 6 to Kings Lynn Super Off Peak Day Return (CBA)

If it's out and back the same day, £26.65 offpeak day return from Wembley Central to Kings Lynn is probably a good bet: it might be possible to save a couple of pounds by splitting, but then you are committed to a particular route. (All the through tickets seem to be marked "via Cambridge", thus ruling out going via Peterborough and March.)

Thank you. £16.75 Super Off Peak from Kings Cross. It seem excessive to pay £10 for a journey across London - any suggestions? Perhaps a one day travelcard with a railcard discount looks cheaper.

Cheapest combination with that might be a number 18 bus to Euston station and then walk to Kings X from there: £1.50 each way.

I'd use contactless or Oyster PAYG from Wembley Park to Kings Cross St Pancras at £2.80 each way then a Super Off Peak Day Return from Kings Cross to Kings Lynn at £16.75.
