Brave the train journey if you have to.
But if you would like to get both to your desired destination and on the same day, I would suggest considering alternative modes of transport, such as the Tardis, Flu Powder. Teleportation might also do the trick. Or a broomstick.
After the scenic tour I took of half of England courtesy of national rail, it is not my form belief that anything outside of the M25 is terra incognita. And therefore needs to be approached with caution, GPS and a full driving licence. In a car.
