Old Lille is quite simply amazing. One of these places you did not expect to be so nice. I would certainly recommend it for anybody travelling in the general area. It is a walking city. Park your car and enjoy.
In Lille you find a fantastic French town which seems to be busy 24/7.
The architecture is fantastic, and everything is easily within walking distance.
Surprising lack of 'tourist attractions' which is refreshing i.e. you won't find people taking you in tours and no 'waxworks'...More

I went to Lille a couple of months back with my cousin we had driven over there and it wasn't to far from Calais.
I loved the town and the architecture many different shops and restaurants to choose from and much to see
