Overview

Vibrantly modern, yet steeped in industrial history and charm, Lille has worked tirelessly to become a popular short break destination, very fashionable and full of interest.

Lille's name is a corruption of the word 'l'ile' (the island), because when the town was founded it was little more than a village surrounded by waterways.

A rich culture and a lively arts scene, Lille has world-class museums and a national theatre.

Great shopping from designer goods, to the huge Euralille complex, to the various assorted local markets.

Lille has a reputation for fine cuisine.
