Norwich to London late 18th century.

Have you heard of Parson Woodforde?

In the late 18th century he made regular trips from Norfolk to Somerset and would set off from the Kings Head in Norwich at 8 or 9 in the evening and travel through the night and stop off at Bury St Edmunds for breakfast the following morning and arrive at his inn in London at 2 or 3 the following afternoon.

That is amazing. So taking out the time he stopped I estimate about 14 hours travelling.
