Plan your trip from Lille TGV StationLille has a vast array of art museums including the Palais des Beaux Arts, which houses an impressive collection of fine arts dating back to the 15th century. The Musée d'Art Moderne, d'Art Contemporain et d'Art Brut – LaM is a wonderful contrast and displays modern works that are contemporary and at times, rather strange.
Lille is famous for its stunning parks and gardens. For a relaxing time out, locals and visitors head to the Jardin Vauban. Set over three acres, this public green space is modelled on a classic English country garden with immaculate lawns, romantic features, flowerbeds and ancient trees. Spot numerous monuments and even a waterfall.
Another popular escape to nature is the Citadel of Lille, boasting an expansive park and zoo. Located around a star-shaped 17th century fort that was built under Louis XIV’s rule, this huge attraction is set over 50 hectares. The zoological gardens themselves feature hundreds of animals, including panthers, monkeys and zebras.
Road trips from LilleNice - and beyond
If you have time, why not take a road trip across France in your Avis hire car, stopping off at your leisure along the way. Nice is an 11 hour direct drive from Lille, and pit-stops could include Dijon, Lyon and Marseille.
Brussels - and wider Belgium
With the Belgian border around an hour’s drive from Lille, it’s very tempting to add another country to your road trip itinerary. Many interesting sights from the First World War lie close to the French-Belgian border, but the star attraction is Belgium’s capital Brussels – just an hour and a half down the road. From the Grand Place and the Royal Palace of Brussels, to museums and beautiful parks, visitors are spoilt for choice.
Many people visit the city of Lens (just a 45-minute drive south from Lille) for the massive Louvre Lens that opened here in 2012. A regional branch of the world-famous Louvre in Paris, this art museum is located on a 20-hectare former mining yard. Sensational art works and archaeological exhibits are displayed in this ultra-contemporary complex.
