Nord-pas de Calais is one of the 27 regions of France and is split into the departments of Nord and Pas-de-Calais. Bordering on Belgium, it has always been a strategic region in Europe, and consequently heavily fought over. Nord-Pas-de-Calais became a major centre of heavy industry in the 19th century and suffered an economic slump when mines closed and the steel industry declined. Tourism, particularly in Lille, has now grown considerably, boosting the economy.
Despite initially not being thought of as a tourist area, the region has a lot to offer, such as its beautiful Opal Coast. It’s also one of the easiest places in France to reach from the United Kingdom, taking just under two hours from London by Eurostar. Stay in Premiere Classe Lille Centre Hotel to experience fine architecture with a Flemish influence in one of the region’s most interesting towns.
