Good selection of independent shops. Traffic free at weekends. Some decent eateries along the way, plus vintage shops as well as some more high-end fashion boutiques. A ery pleasant change from the mall......

North Laines are perfect for roadside shoppers. You would find everything there, fashion, food, footwear, jewelery, music, collectibles, gifts, and much more. Must not miss if visiting Brighton

Amazing shops, alternative cafés, great atmopshere. This is where you want to go to get inspired. However, touristy and on the brink of losing its identity to pretentious Hipster culture. Yet, a great place to see

I loved the North Laine with its quirky little shops and variety of goods that are not on the high street. On a lovely sunny day perfect to wander down and find t-shirts, gifts and lots of places to eat and drink too - a must do in Brighton

Lets be honest - Brighton is a beautiful place, and the North Laine proves it. Great shops, friendly people and awesome little indy coffee shops. My favourite city in the UK

What a great parade of little independant shops, cafes and bars. Reminded me of Carnaby Street! Buzzing atmiosphere and also some great antique shops to browse around, that had lots of seaside memorabilia.

This area is full of so many varied, independent stalls and shops that a stroll along the North Laine is always interesting. One can find many quaint, beautiful artefacts here that are difficult to locate anywhere else.

The Lanes are full of "Little Shops" of interest, to be honest though mostly jewellers. They can get a bit crowed due to the nature of the Lanes.

When visiting Brighton everyone heads to The Lanes off the seafront which is quaint and lovely to see but the North Lanes are a totally different experience. Fantastic vibe with independent shops, vintage boutiques, music shops and amazing cafes and restaurants.Took me a few years to find this area in Brighton but it is now my favourite place to visit....
