Do they exist? I know that interrail tickets are available to visitors but not UK residents...

It would be ridiculously expensive if one did exist

I dont know, my little sister entered a competion in school where all school kids have entered from around the place and the competion had something to do with a rail company, she came 1st place and the school is telling her she has won a family year rail pass to all uk detinations so she can travel the uk for free, so was just wondering how much are they worth if u was to buy 1.

i wouldn't b suprised is it was a card what gets you money off rail journies, its just what the school is making out what it is

i guess only time will tell tho

I think that your right

That or a family railcard where you get a discount on the trains as a daily pass unlimited for the whole country would be very expensive on it's own as each individual rail company will want a cut, to give the op an idea here are some yearly passes

SUFFOLK & CAMBRIDGE: Standard £2600.00, 1st Class £4160.00.
Or a season ticket just to cover Gravesend to London Waterloo and back costs £2,240.00

So as you can see you'd probably be looking at a price well above £10,000 probably anything up to £100,000
