Why

Lille is a city that most just pass through via bus on the way from London to Paris or vice versa, like I did. However, it has a lot to offer and is not visited a lot at all. It’s also a place to learn the culture of northern France. Next time, make Lille your destination.

Where

Lille, France is located close to the Belgium border of France. It’s just east of the seaside town of Calais, France and and south west of Brussels Belgium
