Eurostar's Plus Culture and Gourmet offers extend to Lille
Friday 7, October 2011
Eurostar, the high-speed passenger service linking London and mainland Europe, has extended its exclusive ‘Eurostar Plus’ collection with the addition of a number of exciting new museums and restaurants in Lille.
All Eurostar passengers travelling to the French city can now enjoy far more than a train journey courtesy of ‘Eurostar Plus’. The added value scheme offers 2-4-1 entry into top exhibitions and exclusive discounts at popular restaurants and shopping destinations in Paris, Brussels, London and now Lille, simply by showing their valid Eurostar ticket.
Five of Lille’s most popular museums are now part of the ‘Eurostar Plus Culture’ range of offers which give passengers the chance to enjoy a cultural extravaganza with 2-4-1 entry into the following paying exhibitions:
In addition, for travellers wishing to sample the local Lille cuisine, the Eurostar Plus Gourmet partnership with toptable offers discounts at popular restaurants in the city including Clément Marot, Les Remparts, Au Bout des Doigts, Le 28 Thiers and Zango.
To take advantage of discounts of up to 50%, passengers simply need to visit Eurostar Plus at www.eurostar.com to select their preferred restaurant; they are then transferred online through to toptable.com to book a table. To receive their exclusive discount passengers present their Eurostar ticket at the restaurant – it’s as easy as that.
Eurostar travellers to Lille can also take advantage of the Eurostar Plus Shopping deal, which offers passengers a 10% discount at the Galeries Lafayette store in the city’s old town.
Reuben Arnold, Eurostar’s Head of Commercial Development, commented: “We are always looking for more ways to provide Eurostar travellers with added value extras so that they can make the most of their trip every time they travel with us. We are proud to be able to offer discounted access to some of the world’s finest museums, galleries and gourmet experiences and we are delighted to be able to extend the Eurostar Plus collection to the city of Lille.”
Eurostar Plus also extends to Paris, Brussels and London with more information available at www.eurostar.com. Tickets for travel from London to Paris, Brussels and Lille start from £69 return and can be booked up to 4 months in advance.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
