It's easy to get from Lille Eurostar Station to Gare Lille Flandres - a couple of hundred yards or so across what is effectively a wide new plaza, with smooth paving. No steps. Easy to find too - a lot easier than finding your way from King's Cross to St Pancras.

Inside you can get your tickets either from the machines or from the people behind the ticket-windows in the ticket hall, who're obviously used to dealing with English-speaking travellers.

If you've got a bit of time to spare, there are several brasseries just across the street in front of the station where you can get excellent beer (with moules if it's the right time of day). Or you can go over to the Grand' Place and see the Déesse on her column. It was raining, so I got a taxi, but it's in easy walking distance.

If you need to travel from Lille-Flandres station but you're not sure your conversational French is up to buying a train ticket the good news is that the automated ticket machines in the foyer will give you a language choice that includes English. This is handy if you want to travel to, say, Lens to get to the new branch of the Louvre there.
