"With a direct train from London to Lille (less than 2 hours), it couldn’t be easier to visit this beautiful, historic city. Lose yourself in the scenic centre, surrounded by restaurants, cafés and architecture.  Home to the largest and oldest Christmas Market in the North of France, it’s the perfect destination for groups to visit at Christmas time, to immerse themselves in French Culture and cuisine, all whilst picking up a trinket or too!"
