Lille is City of Culture 2004 and has created a spectacularly innovative programme of events as part of the year-long celebrations. But it is also an ancient town with a fascinating history, poised as it is on the border of France and Dutch-speaking Flanders. A beautiful old city, spectacular fortifications, intriguing Art Nouveau architecture, as well as a famous museum, and plenty of opportunities to savour the Flemish enthusiasm for fine food and drink, make Lille a most attractive destination, and one that is easily reached by Eurostar. Derek Blyth has been exploring Lille for many years. His pocket guide contains four walks through the historic centre of the city, and is illustrated with Renaissance paintings, early maps, historical photographs and engravings. Full practical information, including reviews and recommendations for hotels and restaurants, is included, together with recommendations for making the most of the Cultural Capital celebrations.
