    Office du Tourisme de Lille

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Lille Tourist Office is located in the former gothic chapel of a 15th century palace built by the Duke Philippe the Good of Burgundy (Palais Rihour). Most of this building was badly damaged by fire and remained empty until it was renovated for its current use.

    The centre is a good source of maps and tourist information. The Tourist Office also offers a range of guided tours, including minibus tours, walking tours of the old city, visits of the belfry and battlefield tours. Also available for sale within the office are the usual postcards, guides and books, gift ideas, regional specialities and local arts and crafts.

    Monday to Saturday: 9:30 am to 6:30 pm
    Sunday: 10:00 am to 12:00 pm and 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm

    Most people head for the Tourist Information Office when they visit a new place and I am no exception.
    I love the old building that this one is in.
    The centre itself is well laid out with plenty of staff manning the desks.
    A walking guide to the city is available for 2 Euros and a map for less than 1 Euro. There is also a gift shop in there.
    If you take a photo of the side of the building mind the step!!!
