How to get to the city

   

Air:         There are two main airports that serve Paris.

                Roissey Charles de Gaulle is situated to the north of the capital and Orly to the south. The majority of airlines fly to Charles de Gaulle from Britain

                There are three main ways to get from Charles de Gaulle's two terminals into central Paris:

                Line B of the RER train goes right into the heart of the capital via the Gare de Nord railway station.

                The airport runs a shuttle bus service called Roissy Bus   which links Terminal 2 with Metro station Opera (on lines 3,7 and 8) The service operates 6am-11pm

                Air France also operates a bus service that goes to multiple destinations in the city. They have an English   information line: (+33) 1 41568 900

                Paris airports:

                Charles de Gaulle airport:

                (+33) 1 4622280

               

Rail        The easiest way to travel to Paris from the south of England is by Eurostar from London,St. Pancras or Ashford in Kent.

The service takes you to the Gare du Nord, in the heart  of the city, where you can pick up the Metro, RER, taxi and bus services.

                www.eurostar.com

               

Road      If you want to hire a car in France you can start on the    Eurostar or take a ferry

There are a handful of ferry operators running between               Portsmouth and Caen/Cherbourg/Le Havre, Poole and Cherbourg; Dover-Calais is the quickest crossing and for the travelling sports fan, time can be of the essence.

Eurotunnel takes cars through the Channel Tunnel. Bear in mind that prices are seasonal, but are for the car,      so the more people there are in your vehicle the cheaper per person

                www.eurotunnel.com

               

Bus         Eurolines operates coaches from London Victoria coach                station to Paris, ending at the coach station on Avenue General de Gaule, Bagnolet.

                The journey is not for the faint-hearted as it can take up to nine hours, but it is the cheapest

Colin Boag is a regular columnist in The Rugby Paper, and I usually find him worth reading. However, he is one of those rugby writers who like to blame all rugby’s ills on football.

Championship to Premiership – Mind the Gap (Tue, 25 Apr 2017)
Just to clarify at the outset, I am talking about rugby union’s particular problems with the gap between the Premiership and the Championship, though I am aware of the parallels with the round-ball game. 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
