So many different independent shops, you can get lost and never come out again (certainly not with your Ccard intact, you will spend!)

Some interesting shops and restaurants but not a morning place in the winter. Can be quite noisy if you book a room in the area

The Lanes are ideal location for exploring, browsing, shopping, people watching, eating and drinking. Must visit whenever in Brighton, whatever time of year.

The Lanes have been my favourite place in Brighton for years and friends have a shop in one part, its a mixture of shops, including fashion, jewellery, art, furniture and antiques, it also has some lovely restaurants and pubs that have a wide range of food types.

Its quaint like walking through the world of Harry Potter, lots of shops and eateries and if your looking for jewelry then this is the place to visit, better than going to the shopping center

I have always loved the lanes ever since i visited when i was young; it is full of wonderful and pretty shops, cafe's and 'one off' places. It is very vibrant and colourful and always has a warm and welcoming atmosphere. It is a 'must do' when visiting Brighton!!!
