Tourcoing’s centre is the beating heart of the town. It is nowadays very accessible (public transport, non-polluting transport, parking, traffic, etc.), multifunctional, welcoming and attractive. Welcome !
Tourcoing’s town centre offers a wide range of cultural, sporting, commercial and leisure amenities, all within close range of each other.
Tourcoing’s historic pedestrian streets contain a wide range of small shops… Alongside dozens of businesses, the Saint Christophe shopping centre and the Les Écrans cinema add to this local offer.
If you like market shopping there are several opportunities every week!
The town centre has a multimodal public transport hub with direct connections:
The Council has embarked on an ambitious development programme known as the “Swimming Pool Quadrilateral”: a strategic area covering 5 hectares between rue Nationale, rue du Bus, rue du Haze and rue Gabriel Péri. This unexploited town centre site will eventually contain 300 homes, a school with 15 classes, an infancy centre, cultural and associative facilities, offices, shops and renovated public spaces.
Tourcoing’s town centre will soon be home to the regional branch of the “Institut du Monde Arabe”. The Institute will be housed in the former swimming school, which many of Tourcoing’s inhabitants frequented a few decades ago…
To make it easier to receive the Tourcoing public and make internal organisation more efficient, all the Tourcoing Town Hall services will soon be grouped together in the same building, a real administrative centre at the heart of the Swimming Pool Quadrilateral.
