Historic centre of a pleasant city

Worth a visit. A typical historic French city centre with all the architecture and cafe life you'd expect. It's a lively lively place with some very good restaurants nearby.

Quaint city square, the hub of the city's old section. You will find plenty of restaurants and shops and a number of art galleries. Avoid Sundays when services are reduced.

Came here on 27th of December and found Kerstmaarkt ( Christmas Market ) in the central ^___^ It was a beautiful place also busy and crowded. There were so many cafes, restaurants and bakeries offering delicious things to try ^__^.

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.

Grand Place is the beautiful place in the Lille. I went there during Christmas festival, full of crowd, feels like in Mumbai for some time.

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.
