Senior Rugby Tour to Lille

Minchinhampton's 10th rugby tour with Burleigh Travel took them to Lille, one of the few popular rugby tour destinations they had yet to travel to. During their rugby tour to Lille, the players of the Gloucestershire based team were able to experience Lille's contrast in modern and historic features and explore the mix of nightlife on offer.

Minchinhampton RFC Lille Robin Hood Fancy Dress

After their usual pre tour breakfast before leaving, once in France, the short journey to Lille meant that the tourists were soon exploring the local bars and restaurants, with their city centre accommodation making everything easily accessible; this made for smooth running and enjoyable rugby tour for all as everyone could find their way home at the end of each night!
