Priest's House Museum (8 Miles) The Priest's House is a historic town house dating from the 16th century.
Located in the heart of the city, it was demolished in 1971 and replaced with the Forum des Halles, a modern shopping mall built largely underground and directly connected to the massive RER and métro transit hub of Châtelet-Les-Halles. Les Halles was the traditional central market of Paris.

Also I am quite a sporty person, I play netball, roller derby, rock climb, also enjoy badminton and basketball, I know there is a pretty good netball league there, but does anyone know of any roller derby teams or anywhere I can put my quad skates to use?
Im so nervous / excited / scared about moving there as I have heard so many mixed reviews and really don't know what to expect now :-( Ill hopefully join in with one of your nights out soon, (I need friends), once I suss out my new life :-) any feed back or info on any of the above would be greatly appreciated..
