The square is full of bars and places to eat. Square itself is used for parking cars, but houses are nice.

Le grand place is used as parking in the evening (in any case). There are several restaurants on the square. So no troubles finding a parking place

Reconstructed after WW1 this is a great location on which to base a stay in Arras and visit battlefield sites. The square has been reconstructed and is very picturesque

Saw the location being used in an episode of the Apprentice so I decided to visit. The market was very large and enjoyable. The area around the Grand Place was nice to walk about but was not very large.

Nice restored and impressive square which is also nicely lit at night. It hosts quite a few bars and restaurants and, unfortunately, also a huge car parking which dominates the square. Nice to have a strawl and a drink on a sunny day.

Lovely square surrounded with old building most hosting bars and restaurants and the belfry as the focal point. The market is there on a Saturday. Some restaurants around are more welcoming to tourists (and families than others)

Some wonderful restaurants and bars and relaxing atmosphere. A huge car park in the middle though and did prefer Place Des Heros a short walk away though.

A great place to sit drinking a few refreshments and watch the world go by. There are plenty of bars and eateries surrounding this beautiful square. Go up the nearby belfry for a few euros and get a fantastic view of the surroundings too!
