“Spoilt by a fun fair”
Review of Grand Place

Grand Place
Ranked #3 of 46 things to do in Arras
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 September 2013

Couldn't appreciate the Grand Place as there was a huge fun fair set up on our visit. It didn't seem very popular either with the locals.

Huge square with nothing in it. Few cafes, no decent shops, no street furniture so nowhere to sit and apart from architecture nothing to sit and admire. Dull, grey and uninteresting in my opinion.

Arras is a lovely place to visit and the people are very nice but avoid taking a break for a coffee and a treat at Duployez Patisserie (next door to Paul's shoe shop) as you will get a big smile alright and a big bill to follow. I had a coffee (at twice the local price) and a small 'taster' of chocolate and it cost 6 euros 35! The chocolate tasted like it had been made a long time ago as well.

We really enjoy sitting out at night at the best restaurant in town ( La Palerme) in the Grand Place. It has lots of character.

Good selection of bars and restaurants and a great place to sit and people watch whilst enjoying a cafe crime or a leffe beer.
