How do you best celebrate the finale of the Six Nations rugby championship? By using Skyscanner to organise a pub crawl that takes in England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Italy and France… in just 48 hours, that’s how!Dare you take the challenge? Yes? Well, first a few ground rules. The aim is to have at least one drink in the capital city of each of the countries taking part in the Six Nations tournament. Airport pubs are cheating – you need to travel to a bar near each city’s Six Nations rugby stadium, or at least, to truly claim you’ve done the challenge, somewhere in the city centre where you can drape your flag while you down a lemonade. You also need to get back to your starting city within 48 hours. We’ve picked London as our start point, on Thursday 19th March, with the aim of getting to Twickenham Stadium in time for the final Six Nations match (England v. France) at 5pm on Saturday 21st March. Think of it like Around the World in 80 Days, only with booze and rugby instead of Michael Palin and a lion in a top hat. OK, here we go…1. CardiffIf you’re starting from London, which we are, ‘cos we want to do it Willy Fog style (yes, in a top hat and lion costume), there aren’t any direct flights to Cardiff, so we’re stuck with the boring old train for this first leg. If you’re starting elsewhere – say the north-west of England – find your ideal flight on Skyscanner like so: Cardiff hotelsSo rush out of the Reform Club, or more likely, the office, hand luggage in hand (remember, no tent pegs), and jump on the 17.15 from London Paddington with First Great Western, which should get you in to Cardiff Central at 19.26. Or leave work early so you’ve got a wee bit more time in the Welsh capital. The Millennium Stadium is only about seven minutes from the station on foot, or four if you run, and there are over 70 bars within a quarter mile radius of the stadium, so you shouldn’t have a problem finding somewhere to drink. Try The City Arms, a popular real ale pub right by the stadium entrance. Don’t get too comfy though, we’ve got a flight to catch.2. DublinNeck your pint and run for the airport shuttle bus. It only takes 10 minutes, so you may just make the 21.15 flight to Dublin (Aer Lingus, £70). Arriving at 22.25, this gives you enough time to jump in a cab and head to a pub near Aviva Stadium in time for last orders – Searsons near the stadium is open until 12.30am on Thursdays. Don’t forget to book somewhere to sleep before you have a few beers, and there’s an early start, so don’t have too many.Dublin hotels3. EdinburghYou have a couple of choices of flights to Edinburgh in the morning, but for the most economic option, take the 06.30 departure with FlyBe going via London City for £85. Remember this trip is hand luggage only: we don’t have time to faff about with checking in bags, so you’ll need to discard any bulky items like traffic cones or policemen’s helmets before getting on the plane. When you get there (well in time for lunch), take Edinburgh’s wonderful tram and get off at Murrayfield Stadium, just a few minutes’ walk to the venerable Murrayfield Bar for a swift half or two, or three.Click on the image to below to discover 10 beautiful places to visit in Edinburgh All flights found using Skyscanner on 8 March 2015.

LondonNearly there. Get on the 14.15 flight from Rome Fiumicino to London Heathrow (British Airways, £122). It should arrive at 16.00, giving you just enough time to jump in a taxi and dash to Twickenham Stadium for the England v. France match at 17.00. The Duke of Cambridge is just a stone’s throw from the stadium and is showing all the Six Nations matches, so if you haven’t got a ticket for the game, you can enjoy the match with a pint in hand while regaling fellow patrons with tales of your travels, smug in the knowledge that you’ve completed the Six Nations 48-hour pub crawl challenge.Click on the image below to discover some right royal attractions in London: 4. ParisNext stop, Paris, so put down your pint and catch the airport bus from pretty much right outside the pub. Hop aboard the 17.20 flight to Paris Charles de Gaulle with Flybe, £153, then jump on the RER to La Plaine Stade de France. You’ll be able to find plenty of fellow rugby fans in Paddy Wack’s (4 Boulevard Anatole) so get stuck in, and/or head into central Paris for all manner of more cultured activities. Whatever you do, get an early night: we’ve got an early start tomorrow.Paris hotelsMore: 10 best things to do in Paris – a local’s guide10 romantic hotels in Paris5. RomeThe flight to Rome is at the punishingly early time of 07.20 with Easyjet, £84, from Paris Orly (remember, it’s not the airport you arrived at). Drag your tired self aboard and grab a couple of hours’ kip, or a coffee. On arrival, get the express train from Fiumicino airport, then change onto the metro to get to Stadio Olimpico for a stadium tour. It’s a bit early for a drink (or is it?) and time is tight, so stay classy with an espresso and a grappa in a café. Alternatively, head to Scottish-themed pub (no, really?!) The Highlander (near the Spanish Steps) before getting back to the airport for the final leg of our journey.
