I found this to be a very useful tourist office and the staff more than happy to help when you point out your lack of useful French language skills what you would like to do while in Lille. Plenty of literature to take away and think about as you wander this beautiful city. The building is part of the charm,... More

I called into this so called "Tourist Office" yesterday to ask if - like in Paris - the local museums had any concessions for the Disabled and their Carers. I was told "No" but was given a leaflet in French with information on what museums were accessible, and was told to buy a Lille City Pass. The attitude was couldn't... More

The tourist office is within an old, beautiful building and is much nicer than the tourist information offices in the UK. The staff were helpful and there is a small shop.

The tourist office is located in the former Gothic private residence of Duke Philippe the Good of Burgundy. The building was badly damaged by fire and remained empty until it was taken over by the city’s tourist information office. Outside, as part of the rebuilding process, a modern war memorial was built into the exterior wall. The building and its... More

The tourist information centre is in what used to be a church. The staff are really helpful and there are lots of resources available if you want to go out on your own or part of a tour. It's really close to Rihour station on the metro. A must for those wanting to visit the area.

Helpful advice, maps, tickets for tours, passes for Lille plus a shop for cards and souvenirs. It's situated close to the Grand Place and can be reached by bus and metro although, as with most places in Lille, it's quicker to walk. N.b. Couldn't find a toilet there .... bit annoying. But there are plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby.

This is the place to purchase your Lille Pass ( if you haven't already got it). This gives you a free one hour city tour, free travel on Metro and buses and free admission to numerous attractions.
