I have a question and I was wondering if anyone could please help me.
—- I will be arriving at Heathrow on July 17 at 8:30 AM and will need to get to Moreton-in-Marsh by public transportation as I do not have a car.
—-When I leave Moreton on July 20, I will be taking the train from Moreton-in-Marsh to Hereford at 10 AM. I have already bought this ticket through the “redspottedhanky” site. I was under the impression that since Moreton does not have a ticket machine, that I would be able to pick up the ticket from the ticket office at the train station. When I asked “redspottedhanky” how I should pick up my train ticket since Moreton-in-Marsh does not have a ticket machine, this was their response:
“In order to collect tickets purchased via the website you would have to collect them from a ticket machine within the station as you cannot collect from the ticketing office. If they do not have a ticket machine facility, then you cannot purchase tickets via the website unless you travel from an alternative station”.
It appears then, that I have to go to some other train station to get my ticket.
At some point, either the day I arrive, or while I am staying in Moreton, I would like to visit Blenheim Palace.
Considering the above information, how would you advise me as to how to arrive to Moreton-in-Marsh via public transportation?
Where to pick up the ticket(Oxford which I could do when visiting Blenheim)?
When to visit Blenheim–on my way to Moreton from Heathrow or on one of the days I am staying there?
Thank you so much for your help!
