Quirky shops, no big chains, individual clothing, shoes, antiques, memorabilia, antiques, second hand quality clothing (retro) with equally quirky people working in some of them. Loved Starfish vintage clothing. Great hustle bustle atmosphere, can get a little crowded, but its Brighton at the week end what do you expect! Great little cafes throughout the road and wonderful if you are... More

Browsing the shops in North Laine is like being in the market area of Glastonbury festival, lots of hand made crafts from Thailand, etc. but the prices are really good - must be the competition !

With good weather you could spend hours mooching through all the stalls and shops a great area to while away the hours.

There is plenty to see in North Laine, ample shops, coffee bars and snacks. With the sun shinning as it was you can stroll for ages and spend lots of money.

The North Laine (NOT Laines) is well worth a visit and farmore interesting than the better known Lanes tourist area which has become too over trendy since the turn of this century with the loss of all but a handful of the previous antiques shops and collector's emporiums to browse in...all but gone I'm afraid! If however you're into trendy... More

You cannot come to Brighton and not walk the lanes with quaint shops, pebbled narrow streets, restaurants with its quirky atmosphere. A definite must in your list.
