Most of Arras was destroyed in WW1, like many other cities, towns and villages in the area. The reconstruction has produced a main square of great elegance, surrounded with restaurants, bars and cafes. The centre is car parking, as with so many French and Belgian...More

We walked around the square one evening, the architecture is of course amazing, a huge size too. The centre though is rammed full with hundreds of cars, it really spoils the atmosphere. Prefer Bruges.

What a beautiful city this is. A google search failed to provide any information on Arras. We were amazed by this lovely place on our recent visit to the World War 1 battlefields.

The central square in the city is a hive of activity particularly in the evenings. There are bars, restaurants, cafes all round, and the food ranges from fast-is food to nice quality fine dining.

Bit of a hidden gem if you ask me, I never knew a Grand Place of such amazing quality existed in Arras. This Grand Place compares with that in Brussels but without the crowds and as many tourist traps. A very casual atmosphere with many...More

My parents, husband and I stayed in a hotel on Grand Place. What a beautiful cobbled square, full of fabulous buildings which are illuminated at night. There is a huge underground car park, as well as parking in the square. Arras, and the Grand Place,...More
