School Trips to Lille

A school trip to Lille is a great option for groups studying French, especially if you’re looking to arrange a festive treat for your students or if you have a primary school group!

There are, of course, many enchanting Christmas markets taking place throughout France, each offering a unique variety of festive music, tasty treats and lights. But the charming city of Lille is the perfect place to experience the authentic and magical atmosphere of a traditional French Christmas market.

Not only is Lille within easy reach of the UK, which is ideal for a short Christmas markets trip, but it also boasts one of the most famous Christmas markets in France with over 50 stalls selling traditional and regional crafts, cuisine and gifts.

On the border with Belgium, Lille is within easy reach of the UK, making it one of the best destinations for a short school trip to France, and a great option for a day trip.

Lille offers the exciting opportunity to experience French culture with a strong Flemish influence. And this is at its most vibrant and exciting at Christmas, when the festive markets take over the city centre. You’ll enjoy raclette followed by stroopwafels and, if that’s not enough, the city also has some fantastic patisseries and chocolateries to explore.

Lille is also the perfect choice for a primary French school trip, not least because of the short journey times. It’s also easily navigable and less hectic than somewhere like Paris, yet still offers a wonderful introduction to all things French!
