A very impressive cobbled square surrounded by wonderful Dutch-gabled terraces on three sides with stone pillars. Bars and restaurants abound. On the fourth side sits the Beffroy d'Arras a clock tower in the Flemish gothic style. Although in actual fact not particularly old (the original destroyed in WW2) it is a stunning building and well worth a detour.

We had an awesome evening in Heroes Square when visiting Arras. There were a huge range of restaurants and outside dining and the ambience of the square was fantastic on the warm evening we visited.
What was more surprising the next day was finding out that underneath where we were eating are a network of tunnels (Wellington Tunnels) that were used in WW1, hence the name Place de Heros.

A huge European square with cafes all around the perimeter and a grand ( rebuilt) church at 1 end. Free entertainments too. A marching band and a children’s/youth orchestra whilst we were there

Stopped here on a recent trip and we loved it. Relaxing sunny spot to have a few drinks and eat. The place was very busy but we always found somewhere good to stop.

Architecture is fantastic having been mostly demolished during the war it has been sympathetically stored to its original splendor.

Large cobbled square in the centre of Arras with a big selection of bars and resturants around the perimeter.

I understand the square was named and dedicated to the towns resistance fighters who lost their lives in WW2
