France Explorer at château de grande romaine for boys' and girls' brigades or cadets

Make France unforgettable

Making memories is more fun with friends!

That first glimpse of the Eiffel Tower, appreciating the scale of the Arc de Triomphe, the crowds staring at the Mona Lisa; a halting conversation to buy a hot croissant and the sensory onslaught of a street market.

First-time experiences are priceless, and all the better when shared with friends.

Imagine how much your Girls’ or Boys’ Brigade will take home from an experience of Paris and the excitement generated by the prospect of a day at Disneyland Paris, just 30 minutes from the place you’ll be staying – our Château de Grande Romaine, Paris.

So let us tailor-make a programme for you. We can advise on popular trips, on free trips – on the trips that best meet your group’s interests. And if you choose to spend some time at our centre, we can also offer the PGL adventure bonus (available at our Paris centre at a very reasonable supplement).

Plus we’ll make sure you have a PGL Tour Leader to go with you on your days out. They’ll make sure you don’t miss a thing and will also give you that extra reassurance when taking a Boys’ or Girls’ Brigade group abroad.


Enjoy Paris - one of the most iconic capitals of Europe! Getting out there and exploring the city is the prime motivator. We’ll bring the history, culture and lifestyle of the French to life to inspire and stimulate your group.

Adventure: The PGL Bonus
Choose from a range of on-site adventure activities which perfectly complement trips off-site. Adventure activities can be used to meet a whole range of personal development objectives including teaching your group to work together, communicate better and support each other.

An Evening Programme
A French themed evening programme (e.g. making crêpes, snail tasting) means your group gets even more value from their trip.
