I recently had to travel out of town (two train rides each way lasting ~1.5 hours each) for a job interview. It was the last round when the employer invited me to meet with the other members of the team. Immediately after this, a conditional offer was made (conditional on checking references). An official final offer was made recently (after completing reference checks). The above expenses (mainly Oyster PAYGs and one return train tickets for one leg of the journey each way) were not paid for by the then potential and now future employer. Can I claim relief on that either via my PAYE or self-assessment?

You cannot claim tax relief for these travel expenses.

Thank you
