Make the short trip across the Channel for a weekend of fine French cuisine, culture – and Ligue 1 football!
France continues to produce some of the world’s most exciting players and many of them begin their career in Ligue 1 before big money moves tempt them abroad.
However there’s also one club in France that can now compete on a financial level with the best in Europe – PSG.
Paris Saint-Germain have risen to become a force on the European stage. Their famous Parc des Princes home is now graced by some of the world’s best known footballers including Brazilian Neymar, the Argentine striker Edinson Cavani and rising French star Kylian Mbappé.

There’s real diversity in French football. Head due south and you can sample Mediterranean lifestyle in the city of Marseille. OM perform in front of the stunning curved stands of the Stade Velodrome and their eagerly-awaited matches with PSG are known as Le Classique.
The 2016 Euros left a legacy of numerous new or upgraded stadiums. Among those new arenas are Lyon’s 59,000 capacity Groupama Stadium, while their rivals, the legendary club Saint-Etienne, have renovated their Stade Geoffroy-Guichard, known as ‘The Cauldron’ due to the passionate fans.
The Eurostar whisks travellers from London to Lille in little over an hour so there’s plenty of time to chill in this delightful city before seeing a match at the new Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
Part of the joy of any French trip is to enjoy the fantastic food and drink in a café culture and clubs in regions such as Bordeaux and Toulouse allow you to do just that.
