RBS 6 NATIONS - PARIS
FRANCE v ENGLAND
Saturday 1 February, 2014

Paris is a long time favourite with Six Nations supporters and an away fixture here guarantees a memorable rugby weekend. Fantastic food, great wine and breathtaking sights all complement the ‘main event’ at Stade de France. Paris is the Grande Dame of heritage, culture and art and the very name conjures up a multitude of images: narrow streets and smoky cafés, evening cruises on the Seine, dusty bookstalls along the Left Bank and Bohemian restaurants in the Latin Quarter. Paris is a seductive and exciting city and great fun when the Six Nations hits town.

TRAVEL PLANS

Our packages are based on Eurostar’s high speed train service between London St Pancras and Gare du Nord, Paris. From city centre to city centre, without time consuming airport transfers, you’ll arrive in the heart of Paris in just over 2hrs 20mins.

From Gare du Nord station you can easily reach our featured 6 Nations hotels by the Metro, RER or a taxi. Public transport is frequent, on time and good value for money. To speed you on your way when you reach Paris, we recommend you purchase a ‘Paris Visite’ Pass at St Pancras, which gives you unlimited travel on bus, Metro and RER express Metro services in Paris.

 
 

TICKETS / STADE DE FRANCE

Our match tickets are guaranteed and located behind the posts at either end of the ground.  Upgrade to side-on tickets from £150 per person - subject to availability at the time of booking.

The wonderful ‘state of the art’ stadium at Stade de France is easily reached by RER lines B and D, however trains do become very busy leading up to the game so we suggest you allow plenty of time and aim to arrive at least 45 minutes before kick-off.

The spacious lobby leads to a large brasserie restaurant, themed bar which will strike a cord with rugby fans and a small indoor swimming pool.
