Was bustling with people when we went. You find most of the shops on the high street here. Very vibrant and stark contrast to the old city. Definitely worth the visit

We happened to be in Lille on New Years Day (a public holiday, hence everything is closed!!) so went to the UGC cinema and watched the hobbit. if it says VTSoF on the listing it means it is in it's original language with french subtitles! probably common knowledge but just so you know ;-)

Rue de Bethune lacks charm but is still good for shopping as there are many French high street shops and a branch of the more expensive Paris department store Les Galeries Lafayette. Also to be found are Le Majestic and UGC Cine Cite cinemas which show many films in English with French subtitles.

Almost all the middle range franchised shops one knows in France are on this street, so it's very simple and quick if you are looking for clothes. Try the sides streets and surroundings too for more original shops, it's worth it!

And no French police in sight, and no security staff, ordinary shops, not worth a visit. I liked nothing here

Not a whole lot here, just chain fashion retailers like H&M. The street isn't marvellously clean and isn't worth 'visiting'- but it is the main pedestrian connection between the stations and Republique Square so visitors to Lille will no doubt walk down it.

The Rue Bethune is a wonderful street in Lille and probably the most happenning place in the city. One can find numerous cafes, bars, restaurants, shops and other shopping destinations here located under some wonderful buildings. A perfect place to roam around and enjoy an evening.

A very pleasant stroll with a great variety of shops and plenty of potential spend lots of Euro's ! Or perhaps window shopping until you go back after saving up :)
