Lille & Ghent City Break

Discover Lille, a very popular city break destination located just a short hop across the Channel, plus the vibrant city of Ghent over the border in Belgium

A super value continental break to Medieval Lille in Northern France, a very popular city break destination that offers a tantalising mix of French and Flemish culture with busy pavement cafés, great markets plus world class museums and galleries including the Palais des Beaux-Arts housing a huge collection of works, second only to the Louvre. This charming city has some wonderful architecture with the cobbled streets of the Old Quarter to explore plus stylish shopping, some excellent dining options and great nightlife. We’ll also venture across the border into Belgium for a visit to Ghent, one of Belgium's oldest cities with a wealth of medieval and classical architecture, meandering canals and beautiful castles.

The reception, bar and restaurant are bright and contemporary and there is also an outdoor Terrace where you can relax and enjoy a drink.

Day One

Early morning departure for our journey south to Dover and a ferry crossing to Calais, then on to the city of Lille and the central Novotel where we stay for three nights. Time then to enjoy dinner in one of the many restaurants and bistros, then maybe sample the city nightlife.

Day Two

A full day at leisure to explore the delights of Lille. Maybe make the most of the extensive shopping opportunities or take a city tour to see the main sights and monuments and discover the history of Lille. Listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, the Town Hall with its 104 metre belfry dominates the city and offers some spectacular views from the top.


Day Three

Enjoy a further day of exploring Lille or alternately join us for a visit to the charming Belgian city of Ghent where upon arrival there will an opportunity to enjoy a sightseeing cruise around the city canals. Graslei and Korenlei are the main quays where you will find unique rows of historical buildings with elegant facades representing different architectural styles. The city is overlooked by the mighty Medieval Castle; constructed in 1180, this impressive moated fortress tells the story of Ghent’s turbulent history. Another main attraction is St Bavo’s Cathedral, a majestic building containing a Romanesque crypt and Gothic tower, richly decorated inside with unique paintings.


Day Four

We return to Calais for a Channel ferry crossing back to Dover and on home to North Wales.
