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         Eurolones 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

England’s failure. Blame it on…. (Tue, 27 Mar 2018)
After England’s failure at the Six Nations, finishing only above Italy, (at least no- one has pretended that it was anything but a failure) the knives have all too predictably been going in all directions. Quite a few have landed in Eddie Jones’ back, but many commentators have looked at the Irish and asked what … Continue reading England’s failure. Blame it on….

Football and Rugby crowds (Tue, 06 Feb 2018)
  Why do you think a rugby crowd is so different from a football crowd? Even if it isn’t that different in demographics and profile, the spectator experience certainly is.   Basically, football fans are not trusted not to monster each other. So we’re all on CCTV in and around the ground, and the whole … Continue reading Football and Rugby crowds
