With an eye on sustainability and reducing my  carbon footprint I’ve wanted to offer my trips by train for a while. The current crisis has provided the opportunity to develop this idea.

For my first photography trip by train I’ve chosen Lille in Northern France. I have developed the idea with a travel writer, ‘Hello Lille’ tourist board and local guide Gaelle.

Lille is just an hour and a half from London and provides a fabulous destination for a photography trip. Lille itself is really interesting and also provides a great hub to visit other places while remaining close to our Eurostar connection.  It also has a developing industry of micro breweries making delicious artisan craft beers!

 

Lille

Capital of the Hauts-de-France region of France and one of  France’s most underrated cities. The city has been transformed from  an industrial centre into a glittering cultural and commercial hub. Highlights include its enchanting old town (Vieux-Lille) with magnificent French and Flemish architecture, renowned art museums, stylish shopping, outstanding cuisine, a thriving nightlife (should you want it!) and some 1600 designers.

Arras

One of the most architecturally striking towns in northern France, the cobblestoned squares of its old centre surrounded by ornate Baroque townhouses which reflect its Flemish past. It was renowned for its tapestries in the Middle Ages, giving its name to the hangings behind which Shakespeare’s Polonius was killed by Hamlet. During World War I, British and New Zealand miners dug tunnels under the town to surprise the Germans to the northeast while the Germans bombarded the town
