We wanted to try a French Christmas Market this year. We've done Nuremberg which was superb, and Bruges which was good. Lille's market (free entry) is in Place Rihour and the variety of stalls and quality of items on display were good - enough to spend a couple of hours wandering around, and several food and drink stalls - we...

We visited Lille at the beginning of the Christmas Market. The centre of the Place Rihour was filled with the traditional wooden huts selling an array of gifts, food and drink, including regional specialities. All stallholders we spoke to were very friendly and explained their products. All around the area are bars and restaurants and it had a lovely feel... More

A lovely area in the bustling centre of Lille, this 'place' has numerous restaurants and cafes to choose from, each with its own style and menu specialities - convenient for the Metro with a station, also taxi ranks nearby and easy walking distance from most other city centre facilities.

A nice little square with shops, cafés, restaurants and the tourist information office, and close to the Vieux-Lille. The tourist office is located in the guard room of the building built in 1453 by 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... More

It is a nice place especially close to the vieux lille and grand place which is an attraction area for all the tourists. There are good coffee shops and restaurants near Rihour and it is also front of the tourism office which makes is a good point

Plenty of activities were going on in this centre eg shows and singers in abundance during the weekend. Fabulous shops nearby eg Bottina shoe shop,Natural fashion jewellery is unusual plus many more.Plenty of pop up restaurants to cater for the enormous crowd of people visiting Lille during this weekend.

Not a whole lot to see or do here. There are a couple of cafés and restaurants, but nothing fantastic.

Our first visit to both town and market. Never seen anything in the UK to compare - numerous Christmas craft stalls, crepes, vin chaud and the town and shops all lit. Fantastic historic buildings intermingled with designer outlets make this a special place to visit. Recommend longer than a weekend to see everything.

During our visit Place Rihour was turned into a Christmas Market. Since I'm not such a fan of this events, not high rated by me...
