City break experience

Lille and around
Lille loves surprises: like the art deco swimming pool setting at Roubaix for the Museum of Art  or The Tri Postal, a sorting office now host to an eclectic programme of worldwide exhibitions. A railway station and a factory, too, now feature events befitting the regional capital whose resident students add zest to the old Flemish style quarter swarming with boutiques, bars and the best in rock and jazz. Get a bird’s eye view from the belfry of a city in perfect harmony with the past and present.
