This is a lovely building with some interesting history. There is an antiques market inside mostly selling old magazines and old collectables. Many of the stalls appear to be closed during the week.

I found something to my taste and shall be backtimimg myself for the... More

We went in as part of a guided tour which was great as we learned about the building and history. Apparently in the summer they hold Tango dances in the courtyard which I am sure must be great.

The old stock exchange building is attractive from the outside, located between two of the main squares in central Lille, facing the Opera across the place du Theatre and the Theatre du Nord across the place de Ch. de Gaulle. Unlike most of the older buildings you can freely go into its central courtyard in the afternoon (except on Mondays)... More

Lovely building and the internal square is now being used to sell old books. Well worth 20 mins to have a look and maybe buy an old poster etc.

It's an impressive looking building but nothing more. We had a cup of coffee in one of the shops on the ground floor. I wasn't aware there was anything more to it or you could get in, similar to most if this area it's not signposted.
