Buzzy area by Riheur Metro and just off Grand Place. The Tourist Office is situated here, main shopping streets and Old Lille nearby.

Went on a Eurostar day trip to Lille, primarily for the Christmas market. Do not waste your time or money going - there are only about 30 stalls, most of which have absolutely nothing to do with Christmas and you can get around in 10...More
