Lille is well catered for in terms of accommodation - since the arrival of the Eurostar terminal in the mid-90s the tourist industry in Lille has grown and grown, as day-trippers and long-weekenders from the south of England and near continent have flocked on cheap city breaks looking for a bit of culture and the continental experience.

Which is a good thing, with neighbouring Lens hosting matches without much of its own tourist infrastructure, Lille will be having to do the work of two host cities in one this summer.

The tourist office website offers an online booking portal for all local accommodation, as well as a phone service that is updated in real-time.
