Lambersart

Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Nord

City of the urban community Lille Métropole, Lambersart takes place in the Hauts-de-France, in the department of Nord. The commune, bordered by the Deûle and the Bois de Boulogne, is located not far from Lille, Lomme or Saint-André-lez-Lille.

Known at the beginning of the twelfth century, the commune of Lambersart was formerly a simple agricultural village on the banks of the Weppes. However, it was not until the 19th century that it developed rapidly in the shadow of Lille. Long industrial city, the city has preserved several vestiges of this economic past through factories of textiles or laundries.

A garden city in the 1930s, Lambersart is nowadays a pleasant city and appreciated for its unique setting, which earned it four flower awards in the French Flower Towns and Villages competition.

Things to see and do

As you walk through the old Lambersart, you will be able to admire several old bourgeois residences vestiges of the golden age of the city, like the castle of La Cessoie, the castle of Ormes or even Villa Saint-Charles. In neo-Flemish style, the latter is included in the supplementary inventory of Historical Monuments. Villa Saint-Georges is also worth a visit, as is Villa Sdez built in the early 1930s.

Several green spaces occupy the territory of the commune of Lambersart, and it is notably possible to walk in the park Borloo, the castel Saint-Gérard, the park of Charmettes or even the ecological garden of the Pont Royal. Not far from here, the wood of the Citadel is appreciated by locals and tourists who have come to recharge their batteries.

Dedicated to contemporary art, the Espace du Colysée offers numerous exhibitions. Built on the banks of the Deûle in Lille 2004, it is made up of two wooden triangles and glass separated by a metallic staircase. The site is surrounded by a mosaic garden and a wet garden and offers permanent collections, temporary exhibitions or rooms dedicated to the history of the Deûle and the ancient festive banks.
