Travel

 

How to get to the city   

Air:         There are two airports within an hour or so of Agen:

                Bergerac to the north and Toulouse to the south

                Bergerac Airport:

                (33) 5 53222525

                Toulouse-Blagnac Airport

                www.toulouse.aeroport.fr

               

                From Bergerac to Agen:

                The only practical way into Bergerac, about three miles away,

                is by taxi.

                If you are driving, there is no need to go into town as the airport is just under three miles to the south of Bergerac.

                Follow signs for the N21 south. This single-carriageway road is reasonably quick and the 50 miles takes no more than one-and-a half hours.

                The N21 comes into the north-east of Agen.

                The rugby ground, signposted as Parc des Sports, is in the south-west part of town.

               

                From Toulouse-Blagnac to Agen:

                Toulouse is France's fourth biggest city and therefore a better base for those looking to turn their rugby weekend into a city break.

               

Rail         Get into Toulouse via one of the regular shuttle buses then head to the SNCF railway station to the west of town.

                There are regular train services to Bordeaux via Agen, with the journey lasting about one -and-a -quarter hours.

               

Road      Take the A62 peage (toll motorway) north, signposted for Bordeaux. The 56-mile route passes by the south-east quarter of Agen. The journey should take about one-and-a-quarter hours.

Rugby Union in limbo over Brexit as well (Wed, 02 Jan 2019)
The dog’s Brexit the government is making of leaving the European Union has put the organizers of the Premiership, Pro14 and the European Champions Cup in a state of nervous uncertainty with the prospect of no deal in place by the 29 March departure date growing. That falls on the quarter-final weekend in the Champions … Continue reading Rugby Union in limbo over Brexit as well

Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter (Tue, 06 Nov 2018)
Theresa May would have felt right at home at Twickenham. Even a workable Brexit deal sometimes feels more achievable than locating the solution to rugby union’s unfeasibly tight fixture calendar. For a quarter of a century, if not longer, the sport has been trying to squeeze a globally-accepted quart into a disputed pint pot and … Continue reading Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter

The Autumn Window is not entirely open (Tue, 23 Oct 2018)
Rugby’s autumn internationals will be ready to rumble in a couple of weeks. England have a huge game against South Africa at Twickenham, Wales meet Scotland in Cardiff and Ireland face Italy in Chicago. These are big occasions with significant revenues. It is strange, then, that no one in charge of selling tickets, hospitality packages … Continue reading The Autumn Window is not entirely open

Is it so bad if Rugby turns into Football? (Tue, 09 Oct 2018)
The new rugby season is a month old, but this is my first blog of the season, so let’s ride my hobby-horse of how rugby is coming to resemble football. It is because the cry, so often last season, was that rugby was becoming football. Coaches being sacked, the developing transfer market, players talking back … Continue reading Is it so bad if Rugby turns into Football?
