Lille Christmas Market? Any Good??

Hi, I'm planning on going to Lille christmas market between end of november and middle of december on the eurostar with my friend. What is it like there, is it any good or are there any other suggestions (bearing in mind we are on a budget so some like berlin and cologne may not be viable) also is there an outdoor ice skate rink?? I'd love to do that while im there, like you see in the magazines! Any info and tips will be great (ALSO what insurance would be best to take out that will cover the eurostar as im quite sure it will freeze like previous years so want to be fully covered!)

Its an excellent christmas market but it depends on how long you are going for. Not enough to see for 2 days there. A company called Take us touring www.takeustouring.com is organising a 3 day trip which will pick you up from Swindon and it covers Lille and Bruges christmas market. You may want to email them to ask their prices.

I thought it was a bit ordinary*, but it might have improved in the past few years.

*masterly understatement

Arras is a smaller town but a much better market. Unfortunately it's harder to get to and not publicised like Lille. However, that is why it is worth seeing the 2 markets (Lille and Bruges).

I've never seen anything like that on a Christmas market but that is not something I look for? But than I can't comment for Lille.

No, it's a Christmas market, not a flea market.
