Travel from Ieper (Ypres) to Lille

by PeterB2011 Online Now Jun 18, 2011 at 2:16 AM

I wish to travel from Ieper to Lille in order to catch a train from Lille to Charles de Gaulle Airport. My train departs at around 8.40from Lille.
Can you tell me if there is transport available from Ypres )Ieper) at a time to get me to the Lille Station on time?

Cheers

Peter

    will give you train times and details in English.

    There is a train from Ieper to Lille at 0535, arriving 0636, but I think the 0633, arriving 0755, would suit you better.

    Both trains require a change at Kortrijk.

    One thing though, the regional trains from Belgium all arrive in Lille at the old station (Lille Flandres). Most TGVs for destinations other than Paris Nord depart from Lille Europe though. It's a 20 minute walk between both stations.
