A maze of narrow lanes,adorned with boutique shop,eateries and coffee bars. Well worth a stroll during the daytime,but a little deserted during the evening at this time of year.

Lovely quirky shops and vintage market. There was nothing I disliked. Would need more than a few hours when visiting, so need to go back again to see the shops I may have missed.

This is a lovely area of Brighton. The shops in The Lanes are all glitzy - but go to North Laine and there is a vase array of shops forall tastes. Give it a visit the next time you are in Brighton. Well worth it
