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.

This walking street is very typical of the city's architecture and a pleasure to walk through. If you need to shop but don't feel like hitting the mall, this street is your best shot at finding what you want. It has the Galleries Lafayette and all the other smaller stores. Plus, if you feel like grabbing a bite, a waffle... More
