Travel

 

How to get to the city   

Air:         Perpignan has a small airport just to the north of the town.

                Air France flies there from London via a Paris connection.

                Consequently, journey times can be up to six hours.

                Ryanair also fly to Perpignan.

                Buses from the airport stop at the Gare Routiere bus stop in the centre of town and at the SNCF railway station. It should take about 15 minutes.

                Perpignan Airport: (33) 4 68526070

                Because of the limited air services into Perpignan availability and higher prices can make a weekend jaunt   quite expensive. One alternative is to fly to Toulouse-Blagnac and take the train journey south.

               

Road      Exit motorway A9 at "Perpignan Nord", follow the signs    for Perpignan Centre, then leave the dual carriageway at the sign for Aime Giral.

 

Rail:        Take the TGV to Toulouse and change to the regional service. From Toulouse to Perpignan , there is one change at Narbonne, about an hour away.

It is then a further hour by train to Perpignan.

               

Getting About   The rugby stadium is in the northern half of the city across  the La Tet river in a largely residential area.

From the town centre, near the canal, the stadium is a pleasant 20-25 minute walk. From Place de la Resistance, go along Rue Jean Payra in order to cross the river at the Pont Joffre and carry on straight up the Avenue du Marechal Joffre. The stadium is at the end of a small avenue running off the main road to the right and is signposted.

From the railway station in the west of Perpignan, the walk into the town centre will take at least 20 minutes .Head east following signs for Centre Ville before picking up the route at Place de la Resistance.

Bus No. 2 heading for Haut-Vernet stops outside the turn for the stadium.

The other Saturday I passed a very pleasant afternoon watching London Scottish end their Championship season with a dismal defeat against … Continue reading Championship to Premiership – Mind the Gap

Bath v Brive – The Rematch (Tue, 04 Apr 2017)
Bath v Brive April 1 2017   Back in the early days of the Heineken Cup it wasn’t entirely clear if all this cross-border competition was good for the game. France was the frontier town, and nowhere was more dangerous or more gilded than Brive, smack in the middle of the Limousin. This stand-alone town … Continue reading Bath v Brive – The Rematch
