Favourite Cities and Hotels in France

A vibrant city full of architectural eye candy and energetic street life, Lille sits only behind Paris, Lyon and Marseille in size and population terms in France. Close to the border of Belgium and indeed, not so far away from Great Britain either, the city exudes an entirely different sensibility from the sexy Mediterranean communes that dot the Côte d'Azur. Lille is a northern French city first and foremost, with a vibe that reflects a geography that once put in under the domain of the Netherlands.

Home to over 225,000 people, most of the tourist action in Lille centers around the beautiful historical district of the city. Principal attractions include the imressive and grand Lille Cathedral and the fabulous Palais des Beaux-Arts de Lille. A mere stroll around old Lille is enough to check most of the major landmarks in the city off your list. Although summer is the most popular time to see Lille, the city's Christmas markets are some of the best in Europe.

    Lively Lille

    Much has been done to scrub up once-industrial Lille’s grimy reputation, and to say it has succeeded would be a bigger understatement than saying the French are fond of pastries and small dogs! Lille is now a fully fashionable weekend getaway, with its large population of artsy students becoming flooded with tourists hungry for a taste of its flavourful cultural life. ... Read more »

    Lille is known for its serious attitude to culture and its handsome architecture – particularly around the tastefully restored Vieux Lille. The inhabitants are equally fascinating; from the bourgeois diners crowding the mini-terraces of Rue de la Monnaie to the stone cherubs hovering about Lille’s best pastry shop on Rue Esquermoiseto some of the world’s best-dressed hawkers at the Place du Concert market. Lille is home to cultural elitism at its most endearing.

    Lille’s Top 10

    10. Marché de Wazemmes Selling everything from flowers to puppies, this market is livelier than you thought was possible on a Sunday morning.

    5. Opéra de Lille After Germany stole all the furniture in 1914, the Opéra is once again a work of neo-Classical magnificence.

    9. Musée des Beaux-Arts The elegance of the interior is almost as impressive as the works of Donatello and Rembrandt it houses.

    4. Porte de Paris One of the gates of the old Lille. Used to be known as the ‘Door of the Sick’, until the medieval marketers realised it wasn’t a great selling point…

    8. La Citadelle Pentagon-shaped and open for tours from May to August. Don’t try to enter at any other time – it’s still home to the French military.

    3. The Palais Rihour The most palatial tourist information centre in the world!

    7. Cathédrale Notre Dame de la Treille Blame a 12th century statue of the Virgin Mary for the awkwardly protracted name.

    2. Place du Générale-de-Gaulle Lille’s main square, with a heap of historic houses. Known locally as the ‘Grand Palace’.

    6. The Chamber of Commerce The economic symbol of Lille is one of the sweetest fruits of the city’s industrial background, and really flaunts its beauty after dark.

    1. La Vieille Bourse A prime example of Flemish architecture, the inner courtyard’s second-hand bookstalls is a bookworm’s paradise.

    Lille Events

    Anyone can grab a corner of pavement and play hawker at the huge Grande Braderie Flea Market. Or simply enjoy haggling for a bunch of stuff you don’t really need.

    Chalice Sound System hosts monthly reggae events that are well worth checking out even if you’re not a fan of the purple haze.

    Nurture your inner voyeur and peek inside the homes of politicians during Lille’s Heritage Days in September. Buildings usually closed to the public open their doors for free.

    The Foire aux Manèges Funfair comes to town in August and September.

    Nobody leaves hungry from November’s Envies Culinaires. Barely anyone leaves sober, either.

    When To Go

    • Lille has a temperate climate, with warm summers and mild winters.
    • Rainfall is above average, so pack something with a hood if you don’t mesh well with moisture.
    • Summer is the most pleasant time to visit, with temperatures hovering around 23ºC (73ºF).

    Getting Around

    It only takes about 15 minutes to walk across Lille, but because the streets are so small you can spend days walking around without seeing the same one twice.

    The VAL automated subway is an impressive ride. Buy a €1 ticket just to say you’ve done it.

    This is one of the few places in Europe where taxis aren’t as prevalent as people. Take the hint and use your feet.
