Lille

A former convent brimming with old-world charm and modern comforts on the edge of Lille's beautiful Old Town - breakfast included

Make the most of the short Eurostar journey from London to Lille with a few days in this charming French city. You’ll be perfectly placed between the park and the Old Town of the city at Couvent des Minimes, a stunning 17th-century former convent. Simple and modern bedrooms leave the restaurant to make a scene with its creative menu and stunning glass ceiling. Choose to dine in the relaxed space or wind up a spiral staircase to the champagne bar before heading out to the city's bars and dining scene.

There are markets, cool bars, traditional Flemish estaminets (rustic-style cafes serving alcoholic drinks), and restaurants to hop between. You'll be moments away from Lille’s main sights, such as the Place Charles de Gaulle, Palais des Beaux-Arts, and the delightful Old Town District with its cobbled streets and Flemish architecture.

Climb the tallest belfry in Europe at the Hôtel de Ville, or for a less strenuous experience, explore the enormous flea market of Braderie de Lille then dip your nose in some books in the Furet du Nord - Europe's largest bookshop.
