Do you need to buy tickets in advance for this or can you just pay on the door at the respective dos?

Don't wanna pay for Eurostar tickets & hotels etc & then not be able to get into the dos.

Just a bit further down the coast , there's Collioure which is simply magical - check out Les Templiers http://www.hotel-templiers.com/gb/sommaire.htm -avoid the annex and if you fancy it , ask for a room overlooking the castle .Direct train to Perpignan

Simon :D

The hotels in Perpignan do appear to be booked up that weekend. All Soulies? Booked at the " Paris Barcelone "by the station for the Saturday night as staying in Argeles for the week.

You may want to see if they have anything free

Perpignan is compact, so the distance from the venues is not as far as it looks on the map.

As previous contributors to this thread have commented, it is worth visiting down the coast if staying a few days, acessible by train
