Lille has eight 'police' districts. If you ask someone your way, not many passers-by will be able to help you. Only the plaques showing the street names can tell you. Lille is divided up into districts and as you pass through these on your way to the town centre or Vieux Lille (the old part of the town), you will discover many interesting places that will enliven your stay.

In the north-west, the Bois Blancs woods - which lie on the bank of one of the River Deûle's tributaries - surround the river port and provide a large area of green spaces. It is a residential district with a low population, and is an ideal place for walking or fishing along the 3.5 km-long banks of the canal, which runs from the nearby Bois de Boulogne. It's also a great place to go for a swim in the Max Dormoy swimming pool or to see one of the numerous shows at the Grand Bleu.
