A cultural and artistic hot spot only a 10 minute walk from the station
If you find yourself with some time on your hands whilst at Lille station it's worth the short walk over to Le Tripostal to see what's on. This art exhibition/celebration space was a postal sorting office in a previous life and was converted in 2004.
They have a range of exhibitions and events on throughout the year and cater for everyone, there's a bar, restaurant and a kids' play area. It's a great way to spend an hour or so instead of sitting around at the station.
