    And will they make it there and then? Also, if I do just get it online, how long does it take to arrive ?

    I'm not sure if this is in the right section or not Sorry mods! I was unsure whether to put it in 'travel' or 'money and finance' or what :ninja:

    Short answer - yes, to both parts of your question. :yes: You'll need to take ID with you and it would be a good idea to download and complete the application form in advance.

    Thank you very much! I should have just looked around a bit more myself! What does it mean by 'staffed station ticket office'? Could I, for example, get it from London Euston?

    Some small stations don't have staff on duty at ticket offices; Euston definitely should be fine.

    It means a station with a ticket office that has people in it - basically anywhere that isn't tiny. Yes, Euston would fit the bill.
