Eurostar's Plus Culture and Gourmet offers extend to Lille


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:


  • Le Palais des Beaux-Arts : France's second most important museum thanks to the wealth and diversity of its collections is a characteristic 19th-century building in the heart of the city.
  • La Piscine – Musée d’art et d’industrie André Diligent : an amazing art deco edifice, on the site of the former municipal swimming pool, includes exceptional collections built around the concept of arts applied to industry.
  • LaM (Lille Métropole Musée d’art moderne, d’art contemporain et d’art brut ): With over 4,500 works and three collections, the LaM is the only museum in Europe to give equal importance to the three main components of 20th- and 21st-century art.
  • MUba Eugène Leroy, Tourcoing : A place to experiment art works, establishing a dialogue, with stylistic and thematic encounters, between contemporary art and the art of former centuries, but also between performing arts and visual arts.
  • Le Fresnoy – Studio national des arts contemporains : Throughout the year the public is able to discover important exhibitions of contemporary art, films, concerts, performances, and lectures.


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 to select their preferred restaurant; they are then transferred online through to 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.”
