We go to Brighton a lot and always love a wander round the winding back streets, finding new restuarants, random trinkets and even my pearl wedding tiara!

Lovely stroll to find good pubs and food. Also some great individual shops. Only downside comment - far to many shops selling rings, necklaces etc - and at what prices! But still enjoyed our walks through The Lanes. Good architecture in parts

The lanes are obviously unique and a part of what Brighton has to offer, very interesting to wander around for a short while, but I was bored, not enough variety of shops.

You can spend hours just wandering through the lanes checking out all the little stalls in the markets. Many nice cafes etc.
