A busy station. Approached the ticket office asking what platform my train would be, she told me to check the board. Not very helpful, spent 40 minutes staring at a screen in the end. It was cold, dank and no wifi but they say there's free wifi. Station itself is limited in terms of entertainment factors.

We had to catch our Eurostar train to and from Lille. Getting there was not a problem as we did not hang around but the return was not pleasant. The facilities on the station are pretty poor and we were warned about teenager thiefs and beggars beforehand. There are a couple of bars/cafes and toilets you have to pay for... More

A perfectly functional rail station which will visually appeal if you like modern steel/glass architecture. It appeals to me cos' I like structures etc looked at thru' technologically slanted eyes. I do not advise standing admiring the station on a cold windy day. Wind eddy current make it an unpleasant experience. I visited twic in 2012 I rated 'very good'... More

Lille Europe is the station from where TGV, Eurostar and hi-speed local and international trains depart. The station is quite spacious, clean and features a couple of coffee kiosks and a bakery outlet. The most striking feature is the staff at the ticket counter - most of them know English and are very courteous.

Very easy to navigate around this wonderfully clean, efficient and modern railway station. Well situated to wander into the beautiful city of Lille, one slight warning, if you have a fear of heights some of the openness may disturb you.

Euralille is a shopping centre nearby with a hotel, the station is called Lille Europe according to our tickets. The Eurostar waiting area is very poor compared to St Pancras, or even Paris. However the changeover from Eurostar to TGV to Eurostar is much much easier than in Paris. There is an excellent Novotel 50m from the station. Toilets are... More

We transferred here from a TGV that brought us up from the south, to the Eurostar for St Pancras. We were stuck with about 70 minutes. We had a look around the immediate area and hesitated to wander much beyond the immediate building. Little or no catering and apart from the confectionery etc in the Relais there was only a... More

We ate here before returning home after a weekend in Lille. We felt the meal was good if a little uninteresting, service was also good and all very reasonably priced.

This was built for trains, the passengers were not apparently a consideration. Among the least welcoming of stations I have encountered and it manages to look almost ashamed of itself. Cold, draughty and without any relationship to the town of its location, it seems to have a sort of Gallic sneer about the whole thing. Not a good welcome to... More

Difficult to understand how Euralille Station can possibly be considered an attraction. We were travelling with bikes bags and had to change from a TGV to Eurostar at Lille. What a depressing experience! We were only transferring between adjacent platforms but had to queue endlessly, carry bikes down escalators, queue some more in a concrete, prison-like enclosure and after being... More
