Béthune has old, Vauban-style fortifications and stands on a plain in mining country. It is also a river port linked to the River Lys and the River Deule by the Aire canal. The town suffered considerable damage during the First World War but it has regained its Grand-Place lined with Art Deco buildings and regionalist-style houses with Flemish gables, while the 47m-high belfry continues to survey its surroundings.
