    Hello all,
    Does anyone know of a good camp site in Lille, France near to (very important) the tramways or bus to take us into the centre then out to Croise' Laroche. For a visit to the hospital there and to get the old hip joint back?
    Scrap man needs some more metal:Rofl1:
    Any help please.
    Kind regards

    Ok if no one answers with a proper experience of any camp site in the area then I will phone to the mairie or the Syndicat d'initiative to give you a few names hopefully !

    You can either bump the thread or PM me !

    Amicalement

    I nearly posted "from dim memory I think Lille is a place to avoid". High crime rate.

    I didn't want to discourage you.

    Parking in or near Lille France.

    Thank you Frankie and Brian,

    I only need to be there so that I can get the surgeon and x-rays sorted out but was not aware it was a high crime rate area and in that case I would prefer to stop away from trouble spots and am pleased I put this on FUN to ask. The hospital and surgeon are in the north of the city near MARCQ en BAROEUL (croise LAROCHE). The appointments should be finished for 2.0pm and then we are off towards Poland so if it is dangerous to stop we can drive toward Germany and possibly would like to go without toll roads if possible.
    As this is the first time we will be taking a trip to Europe in the MH I am hoping it will be a good experience.

    We will be there on the 25th July and if anyone knows where we can stay or park it will really help us.

    I do not know if there is anywhere near to park a 6 metre motorhome and I don't mind paying for the privilege but as we have never been we will soon find out.

    Kindest regards

    So you missed the posts on gangs operating around Lille.

    Looks like you you missed the posts of thugs targeting ATMs in Poland.

    It's going to be an exciting trip.

    But don't worry about it, it always happens to Someone Else.

    I'd be distraught if I read that your MH had been emptied in Lille then you got mugged by a huge Pole at an ATM machine in Poland and I'd not warned you.

    I've done my FUN duty. Just use the search engine and read Jim's book on MH security.

    What if the hospital has à large parking and allows you to park there? Would this suits you or do you really need camp site? It it s ok for you then i can phone the hospital and ask if it s possible

    What do you think?

    Hello Frankie,
    Thank you for your help but we have been to the hospital in a taxi car last time and there was not enough room for even the taxi plus we did not see any of the nearby streets as the taxi took us back to the Eurostar, it is such a tiny parking area but it is possible that the building work will be finished and a larger car parking is available. The surrounding area was full of contractors and the road was under repair and also there was major building works on the hospital. It is just that we are unsure if we can get parked anywhere near with the motorhome and also not sure if there is any restrictions of parking for such as us who have to go to the hospital. That is why we were asking for safe place to stop and possibly stay overnight so we could use the tram which was very good on one of our trips to see the surgeon.
    I am hoping that there is a street near to the hospital where we can leave it for an hour or two and we can walk to the hospital. If Brian Hilldweller is right we would not like to stay where we could be targeted.
    Kindest regards
