Apparently you can get a coach/train anywhere in this country, so would that be a good option?
That's as maybe, but you're SOL if you think you'd be able to take that option and have it get you there in any haste. The problem you have is that you're going to have to traverse from the South East to the North West and there are no direct train lines for any of that stuff. Coaches, I don't know about.
Your best bet is to drive... the routes I've looked at predict it to take about 4 hours 30, but depending on your luck with the traffic and how fast you drive, I think you could probably break the 4 hour mark. I've driven from Norwich to where I live in under 3 hours before, and from there, it's only another hour to Manchester. Again, depends on traffic.
