Explore Lille

The highlight of the city is the charming old city centre of Vieux Lille. Stroll around the 17th century buildings spiraling out from the Grande-Place and soak up the traditional atmosphere. On the east side of the Grande-Place is the magnificent mansion of Ancienne Bourse, a classic example of 17th century affluence. In the adjacent square of Place du Théâtre is the Opéra, an interesting blend of French and Flemish architectural influences, while the Nouvelle Bourse boasts an ornate belfry. Heading north along the Rues Esquermoise and Lepelletier will bring you to the center of the old part of Lille, a picturesque maze of small lanes. Other streets worth exploring are the Rue du Pont-Neuf, Porte de Gand, Rue d'Angleterre, and the Rue de la Monnaie (with its Hospice Comtesse and Salle des Malades) and Place Lion-d'Or.

Lille was Charles de Gaulle’s birthplace, and his former home is now an acclaimed museum. Other noteworthy attractions in the city include the 17th century Citadelle, Notre-Dame-de-la-Treille Cathedral, the Church of St-Maurice, and the Musée d'Art Moderne at Villeneuve-d'Ascq, which contains works by Picasso, Braque, Leger, Modigliani, Miró and Rouault.

Around the city, particularly in the Vieux Lille area, are many places to relax and enjoy the pleasant atmosphere. Lounging around the fountain at the centre of the Grande-Place Square is very popular, or picnicking on the grassy areas outside the Museum of Modern Art. The city has an abundance of first-class accommodation, superb restaurants, charming cafes and exciting bars.

Nearby there are many interesting places to head to for short excursions and day trips. Flanders, Picardy and Artois encompass many great monuments, representing the cemeteries and battlefields of both WWI and WWII, as is the region northeast of Amiens, between Albert and Arras, where the remains of the trenches of Vimy Ridge are located. Alternatively, explore the beautiful countryside around Albert and along the Circuit de Souvenir.

Frequently asked questions

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card.

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation.
