After your visit to the retrospective, take the shuttle bus back to Lille, where a short stroll will take you to the specialist boutiques of the Old Town or the retail temptations of the pedestrian district.
First-time visitors can get their bearings on a minibus tour, enjoy panoramic views from the UNESCO listed Belfry, and discover the city’s rich history through its diverse museums and galleries such as La Piscine, a former art-deco swimming pool turned into a museum. But expect some surprises along the way. Lille stays one step ahead by transforming unwanted industrial buildings into contemporary arts centres and meeting places.
