Coach Hire & Bus Rentals For Every Occassion
Lille isn’t a city that gets a whole lot of attention. With much larger brothers and sisters such as Pairs, Lyon, Marseille, and Toulouse, Lille stands as the tenth largest city in France in terms of population.
But don’t let its wallflower status fool you, because it may just be the wild card of France. As the capital of the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region of France, it’s located a hop, skip and a jump from the border of Belgium.
Due to its close proximity to Belgium, Lille maintains an impressive mix of French and Flemish culture, saturating the city with delicate and eclectic charm.
Impressively, in 2004, Lille was blessed with the accolade of being the European Capital of Culture, joining a line-up of destinations like Cork (Ireland), Patras (Greece), and Essen (Germany). No doubt this honour gave the city a well-deserved boost in tourism and economy.
The Aéroport de Lille is located 7 kilometres south of Lille in an area known as Lesquin. A number of airlines fly in and out of Lille airport including Easyjet, Ryanair, Aegean Airlines, and Air France.
Although the airport is only 15 minutes from the city centre, you’ll need to make sure there are no delays or discomfort when getting to your accommodation, as there’s a lot to see in Lille and you don’t want to waste any time.

Lille really is steeped in history. The region only became part of France in 1713 and this is evident in its architecture.
A structure like the Chamber of Commerce de Lille, which was constructed in 1921 in an impressive neo-Flemish style, displays this beautifully; there’s the Préfecture de Lille designed by Charles Hammer which was built entirely of limestone; the 101 metre high Beffroi de la Mairie de Lille is a stunning example of an art-deco construction and is dedicated to Lille’s commitment to peace.
Of course, you can’t mention the words ‘architecture’ and ‘Lille’ without giving a big shout out to the Place du Général de Gaulle (Grand Place) sitting in Lille’s main square, combining Flemish, Baroque and neo-classical. This combination of styles adds something truly unique to Lille that you just won’t find in other French cities.
Don’t waste your time in this magnificent city by sitting on buses and trains. Depending on the size of your group, hire a minibus or coach and relax with the peace of mind that’s got from knowing that all your transportation needs will be looked after.
When travelling around in one of our comfy vehicles, you’ll find it hard to believe that, no more than twenty years ago, Lille was in the grip of a severe downturn. Today, it’s a thriving spot and this is, in part, due to the huge number of people who have moved to the city; a huge number of young people at that.
This dynamic, fresh energy as well as big investments have driven the city to new heights. One knock on effect of this is the range of spas and wellness centres located in and around the city.
If you’re on the hunt for a wellness weekend then Lille may be the place for you. The Aspara Thai Spa and Spa de l'Hermitage Gantois are just two of many offering massage and other rejuvenating treatments in stylish surrounds.
