Cheap flights to Lille

Situated on the northern border of France, Lille is thought to have been some form of settlement from as far back as 2,000BC. Today the city proudly displays its historic heritage and has fast become a popular destination for a European city break. 

Lille is a complete mix of old and new and its vibrant and dynamic atmosphere means that it is constantly moving and developing with the times. There are a selection of historic buildings and famous cobbled narrow streets, an excellent choice of bars and restaurants and some of the best art galleries and museums outside of Paris.

The city has hints of Spanish, Dutch and German, yet is still a really exquisite French city at its heart, full of beautiful Flemish and Belgian influence in its architecture and cuisine.

Sightseeing


Following their "creation residency" at the Musée d'Histoire Naturelle de Lille, artists François Andes, Pascal Marquilly and Gaëlle Luca have teamed up for the Chimère Lille exhibition. Using the museum and its collections as their inspiration, with a particular focus on endangered species, they have succeeded in breathing new life into the old institution. Until 18 September 2017. mhn.lille.fr


The Michel Nedjar, Introspective exhibition at the Art Brut museum LaM in Villeneuve d'Ascq (Lille's neighbouring city) is well worth making a detour for. It examines themes which fascinated the artist and Art Brut scout, from death to magic and travel. Nedjar may be best-known for his dolls made of cloth and mud, but this exhibition also sheds light on pieces from other genres including sculpture, painting and experimental cinema. Until 4 June 2017. musee-lam.fr


For quick bite of culture, catch a lunchtime concert by the Orchestre National de Lille. Expect musical masterpieces from the likes of Beethoven and Schumann without breaking the bank (tickets are priced between €5 and €10). The first three concerts of 2017 are slated for 20 January, 3 March and 22 March at 12:30. www.onlille.com


The Lille Métropole Museum of Modern, Contemporary and Outsider Art (LaM) is running a retrospective of Jean Dubuffet, founder of the Art Brut movement (often referred to as outsider art). Explore man's relationship with the natural and urban worlds, a common theme in Dubuffet's work, via the 13 paintings and one sculpture on show. The LaM is located in Villeneuve d'Ascq, Lille's easy to access neighbouring city. Until 8 January 2017. (www.musee-lam.fr)
