Where to park in LILLE?

Lille, like any large city, can present parking challenges, especially during major events like the Rugby World Cup. However, with proper planning and knowledge of the options available, it is possible to find parking spaces in Lille. Here are a few tips

Parking downtown

Lille has a number of paid underground parking lots in the city center, managed by companies such as Indigo or Q-Park. These parking lots are often located close to the main attractions and are a good option if you want to stay in the heart of the action. Prices vary according to the length of your stay.


Another option is to use one of the many park-and-ride facilities on the outskirts of the city. These parking lots offer discounted (or even free) parking, provided you use public transport to get to the city center. Lille has several park-and-ride facilities located near the main metro stations.

Residential parking

In some residential areas of Lille, parking is free, but often limited to 1h30 during working hours. Pay attention to the signs and don’t forget to set your parking disc.

Parking for people with reduced mobility

People with reduced mobility can use Lille’s reserved parking spaces, which are free of charge and have no time limit. Don’t forget to display your disabled parking card.

Private parking spaces for hire

Finally, there are online services that allow you to rent private parking spaces. These can be a good option if you’re planning to stay in Lille for an extended period.


Don’t forget that the best way to get around Lille, especially during major events, is often to use public transport, which is efficient and well organized.
