This was my first time in Lille, the Grand Place certainly was a very lively center of the city. Even though it was a chilly weekday the area was filled with people. Great buildings and architecture to see with the history of the city.

This place is great at Xmas, dominated by the big ferris wheel that Lille is so famous for. Worth a visit.

Thankfully even though we are here in the 6 Jan the Xmas decorations and the huge Ferris wheel is up and running but it's extremely cold. Gonna try and give the ride a go later this evening when al the night lights are lit.

Small but quaint, busy without being rammed, pretty and relaxing. Lille might not have the huge grandeur of other cities but it is just as beautiful.

My kids loved the market and the panoramic view. We start thinking that next Christmas will take my Italians parents in there.

Whilst not as grand as other cities main squares, you get a sense of Lille being a mixture of Flanders, with a hint of a south-of-France open air cafes. Many beautiful buildings in and around the square to view. We sat in one of the cafes one evening to sample some local beers. Whilst a little more expensive, this is... More

If you are in Lille, its really worth it to visit Grand place. Its not so magnificent as capital of France or Belgium. But if you are already there, go visit it. Atmosphere is really great.
