@saintjamesy89 : We would like to know more or less how many people is coming , but for such a case as your's , at the worst if you arrive without telling us before You'll be accepted
The only problem would be the conservatoire : there's only 40 people who can enter ( and not 41 due to Citroën insurances ) at each session
Our rule is first booked first served
We are trying to add a new visit schedule but this is not garanted for the moment : that's already the very first time the conservatoire is opening on saturnday (and with 2 tours) …!
The only advantage people from this forum have is that we are trying to include them in the 11.00AM session due to the crossing channel : this is the best we can do
Foreign payments will not happen before the beginning of september :french people have already paid it :mrgreen:

Has anyone given any thought to which route to Aulnay we take? ie slow and scenic or blasting down the autoroute. Do we also want to avoid the toll rds.

I've had a look on my map and the A26-E 15 towards Arras and then the A1-E15 towards Paris and then take the Boulevard Peripherique towards Aulnay sois bois.

It'll have to be the quick way there, or we won't make it in time for petit dejeuner and 11 am tour - presume the fast route is the one you've posted?

Should have time for scenic route back, depending on how many have signed up for lunch

This is one of the different possible road to go
You can turn before reaching the Boulevard Périphérique
Here a an interesting link to find your road ( there is also the different prices of the tolls , the distance , the real time ,the £ or € …)

In the upper right part language can be changed
They propose 3 different roads

Your goal is
Boulevard André Citroën

In case I can make it, exactly what are the travelling times planned?
Cross channel sat am, early and cross back on the Saturday or Sunday?

Is anyone planning to go to the other Museam on the 23rd?

And then return on the Sunday afternoon/evening?

It would make the trip a lot less hectic.

Guys - while I think about it:

European Health Insurance Card - do NOT pay for it from a number of organisations who will rip you off ... it's free, get one here if you haven't already -https://www.ehic.org.uk/Internet/startApplication.do (replaces the E111 for emergency treatment in EU)
