History
Opened 1994

Lille Europe is a SNCF railway station in Lille, France, on the LGV Nord High Speed railway. The station is primarily used for Eurostar and SNCF TGV services although some high-speed regional trains also call at the station. The station was built in 1993 to be used as a through station for trains between the UK, Belgium and the Netherlands, as well as French TGV services, except those coming from Paris which normally terminate at Lille Flandres. There is a 500m walking distance between the two stations, which are also adjacent stops on the Lille Metro.

For travellers from the United Kingdom to destinations not served directly by Eurostar, connections are available here on trains towards Disneyland Paris, Charles de Gaulle International Airport, Lyon, Valence, then Avignon, Aix-en-Provence, Marseille St. Charles (and also on to Cannes and Nice); and Nîmes, Montpellier and Perpignan.

Trains between the three capitals of London, Brussels and Paris pass through Lille
