Castres

Postby malkster1 on Mon Oct 18, 2010 4:05 pm

Beleive the Castres Edinburgh kick off is 1845 local and the last train back to Toulouse is at 1956. Is there any other method of return post game?

Didn`t realise trains so infrequent. We`re billoted in Castres so can stay on the beer for a post match celebration before heading back to Toulose the next day. :D

I booked 2 nights in Toulouse before I checked the trains. With the intention of watching Glasgow Toulouse there Friday night. Are most people staying both nights in Castress?

Do you mean watching Glasgow vs Toulouse in a Toulouse pub?

We are staying both nights in Castres. If the partying is half as good as last time, it'll be a great weekend :airborne: :absolute:

Five of us staying 2 nights in Hotel Europe in Castres. Seems central and reasonably priced.

Have decided to risk the Sunday morning train and changed my booking to Hotel Renaissance Castres for 2 nights. Anyone know any good pubs?

Last time we were there the Irish Bar was good - I'm hoping they'll be showing the other games in there! Also, the cafes in the main square were good during the day. It's not that big a place - you'll find the bars fairly easily - and the rest of the Edinburgh supporters. :)

Hi Malkster
Ordered on line and picked them up on Friday. Ticket office were keen not to post out as if lost in post - can`t replace them.
