Friendly & helpful staff. English spoken and leaflets in English. Excellent information about travel on local buses, metro etc. Tour bus was very useful on the first day.

All literature seemed to be around events rather than sites (unless you wanted to do the city tour). Not particularly geared towards non-French visitors as all literature in French. Ok but with Eurostar we expected a bit more of a tourist destination.

I waited outside (with several other people) for about 10 minutes after opening time because the front door was shut. Then a man came and indicated another entrance and implied we were stupid for not knowing that was the way in. They should open the main door at their advertised opening time. Also they told me that the Navette (little... More

I spent a few days in Lille recently, and I was stumped on what to do, as I don't speak French. I stumbled upon the city driving tour in the Tourist Information Office, and it was a great find! It cost ~12 Euros, and the tour was about an hour long, taking us all through the city with a well-narrated... More

Very friendly service and a lot of information. Nice giftshop here. It's in a great location, right at Rihour Place so it's easy to find.

Asked for a Museum about Lille when occupied in both World Wars. Given full details, opening times, bus route for Musee de la Resistance about 30 mins out of centre. Most educational visit. Also City Tour is good value if short on time, and a nice bus ride especially if raining which it does a lot in Flanders!

When you take a 24 hours card and you are staying i town for 2 days buy your card after 10 am so that you can use it next day to visit a museum next day.

Lille's Christmas Market is small with maybe 50 chalets offering food and Christmas specialties. However the setting and atmosphere is very nice and the lights, tree and big wheel make Lille a lovely place for an evening's visit during the Christmas season. There are a couple of rides for the kids and the fantastic selection of local shops cafe's and... More

The Lille tourist office is located in one of the most historical buildings of the city at a very convenient spot near the grand place. The executives at the office were quite helpful. It is a good idea to actually call up the office before planning a Lille trip as the reservation requirements for a La citadel visit and details... More
