Lille, the gateway to Northern France

Lille is an artistic and historic city located in Northern France. It is France’s 4th largest metropolitan area with about 1.1 million inhabitants and about 100,000 students. In 2004, it was designated as the European Capital of Culture. Lille is at the crossroad of international railway network of Europe with easy access to Belgium and the UK. The city has a long-standing festive tradition. The famous Braderie in September is the main event for all shopping addicts. Lille is also regarded as the European capital of online retail with main brands such as La Redoute, Les 3 Suisses, Camaïeu, Castorama and Décathlon having stores in the city.


Start by visiting the Vieux Lille (old town), which is the most picturesque district of the city. It extends north from the Grand Place and included two different areas, each with distinctive architecture: the historic Flemish old town and the royal district. Between the Grand Place and the Notre-Dame de la Treille cathedral, the historic Flemish old town is home to various shops, art galleries, cafes and restaurants. Some of the landmarks which are not to be missed include the Palais Rihour, the only architectural reminder of the period during which the dukes of Burgundy ruled Lille and the Rue Rihour which is located between the Place Rihour and the Grand Place. Rue Rihour will allow you to follow the evolution in Lille’s architecture. Don’t miss the Grand Place, which has been renamed Place du Général de Gaulle, in tribute to Charles de Gaulle who was born in Lille in 1890. The Grand Place is the habitual meeting place and venue for festivities. At the slightest hint of sunshine, the restaurant and café terraces are literally taken by storm. Have a look at the Vieille Bourse (old stock exchange), one of the finest monument in the city.

Have a taste of local cuisines such as carbonnade flamande (small chunks of beef stewed in beer), waterzoï (poultry or fish in a creamy sauce) and potjevleesch (small potted meat). Don’t miss the famous Maroilles cheese.

The main event for shopping is in September during the famous Braderie de Lille. The Braderie turns the city into a huge pedestrian zone where thousands of traders, antique dealers and second-hand sellers continue a tradition which is both commercial and festive! Equally the shops offers interesting deals for all shopping addicts.

  • "very comfort seats"    
    It would be great if there is an instruction to tell us how and where to get the tickets, which i bought online before the trip.  
  • "Quick trip to Lille"    
    Recently traveled by Eurostars from London to Lille to attend a conference. I traveled second class as this was a journey of approx 80 minutes and I considered that the short journey was not worth a first class fare. Great journey with no hassles. Would do again.
