There’s always something to do here with the bars, shops and restaurants. In the summer its a vibrant place filled with life and a fantastic market at the weekend. The architecture is wonderful and at night it glows

My wife and I have spent quite a bit of time in Arras over the years. The Place des Heros is always worth a visit for its historic buildings, shops and cafes. It's right in the centre of the city with ample parking.

I was here in April for the 100th anniversary of Vimy Ridge and I was not dissapointed. The square itself was amazing and full of history and they did it all up with a light show commemorating the battle of Vimy Ridge, fantastic. If you're...More

An interesting town square with many restaurants nearby. The cathedral is very prominent and quite nice particularly when lit up after dusk (see photo). Nice are to walk around.

This place, which is near to the Grand Place, is quite similar in its architecture and type of Flemish houses. There are few Cafes where you can make a break and enjoy of it quietly.

The Place des Heros, seen on a damp weekday morning, is nothing special, but catch it as dusk, or later, and it comes alive. There are cafes and restaurants all round the square, and the parking is free at the weekend.
