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

The place has many panhandlers wandering in the station. Also the washrooms will cost you 50cents for each visit. The outside has multiple group of teenagers as well. Plan to arrive no earlier than 30 minutes before your train departure.

Older than the St. Pancras end so not as well appointed but there is a large shopping mall with a supermarekt & better places to eat next door. Check in efficient but busy & takes longer than at London end - does not open until 45 mins before departure when a long queue had built up & tickets checked 3... More

We arrived early for our return trip back hoping to sit in a warm pleasant waiting area. Having experienced Eurostar stations in London, Paris and Brussells we were expecting something similar. However the only place to sit was a small railway station room. Even when you are eventually allowed to check through (half hour before your train) it isn't much... More
