The daughter of my best friend (25y) is looking for people in Lille who would rent her a room for 6.5 to 8 months, from the coming October. She will be at the university and study French, so a place in a student flat would be perfect.

I'm taking my mum to Lille on Wednesday and although I've stopped off here a couple of times in recent years I can't remember too much about the place.
I seem to remember last time that there was a bus tour of available, now does this still run? and this time of year? walking tour would be great - but given it's my mum, I figure a bus would be better, age and all that ;-)
Plus, if anyone has any suggestions for a nice restaurant for lunch, that would be cool :-)

I'm planning to take an IC train from Antwerpen to Lille Flandres, then catch a TGV train to Paris Nord. There are only 6 minutes between when the IC train arrives and the TGV departs.
From some pictures, it looks like there are 4 tracks in the Lille Flandres station.
Is 6 minutes enough time to change trains? [Of course being next to the door and all ready when the train arrives]
Is this enough time to change trains?

I am hoping in the near future to travel from Dundee, Scotland, to Lille, with the intention of visiting a war grave at Le Paradis (Paradis) near Lestrem.
I can get to Lille without any problem, either by Bus, Train or Flight, but can anyone tell me what transport facilities are available from Lille to Lestrem (nr Estaires or Merville) as I do not have my own transport?
Any help to solve this problem would be appreciated.
Thanking you in anticipation
