A Weekend in Lille

Whatever the season, Lille is the perfect place for a short weekend break. Less than 1 ½ hours’ drive from Calais, why not use Lille as a base with further visits to the historic town of Arras and Belgian city, Bruges.

Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel.

Day 2 Lille & Arras
We spend this morning browsing the shops and bistros that line the windy cobbled street of Lille old town. As Saturday is market day in the main square – Place Sébastopol – we can also browse the market stalls. In the afternoon we can visit the nearby city of Arras, known for its two ornate squares brimming with shops and restaurants, before returning to Lille early evening.

Day 3 Lille Wazemmes Market & Bruges
Today we can pay a visit to the locally renowned Wazemmes flower and food market in Lille before setting off to spend the rest of the day in Bruges. Here, we can relax in the Belgian city, try a river cruise or a horse-drawn carriage ride, or sample a beer in one of the traditional Belgian breweries. We return to Lille in the evening.

Day 4 Departure
After breakfast, we begin our journey home, with time to pause at a French hypermarket for some last minute shopping.
