The answer from jcaron is wrong. I flew to UK and left in 1 day. The border police told me I just had to write that i'm exempt and show the plane tickets for the next flight to prove I am indeed going to leave. You don't have to book a test if you're in the UK for 1 day.

Your ‘visa run’ plan will probably look suspiciously like an intention to live in the UK for extended periods through frequent or successive visits, which is against Immigration Rule V4.2(b).

I'm not aware of any ideal solutions but there are various ways to get a list of all trains leaving from a station that day. For example here is a list of all trains departing from Doncaster today. Which gives a clear (if long) list of possible final destinations.

You can just chance it, I've made the same mistake, explained it at the barrier and they have waved me through. Last time I checked, the price difference is 10p. Caveat Emptor...
