The Lanes in Brighton are an interesting place with lots of cafes, restaurants, bars and small shops.Mainly traffic free but be careful as not all streets are pedestrian zones. Nice place to sit and watch the world go by. Spoiled only by some rather run down and seedy back streets where you do not really want to go.

We absolutely love the quirkiness of each and every shop. We found the lanes on the Saturday night and couldn't wait to go back on the Sunday morning (even though it was diabolical weather)

Lots of interesting shops, eateries and wee nooks-and-crannies. Worthwhile having a wander around although quite easy to get lost and walk around same streets more than once. Good for shopping if your looking for something a little different, although there are lots of tourist shops selling the usual cheap souvenirs

So many different restaurants, bars and shops. Everyone is able to find something which suits. Especially the small jewelery shops. I would all though say that there are many homeless people, sometimes bothering you.

Stunning little place to go, the variety of shops, antiques, clothes etc, so narrow, so close together. Great fun.

Definitely worth setting time aside to meander through the Lanes. Lots of quirky shops as well as modern boutiques. Something for everyone. Some don't open until 10:00 am.

Loved the lanes, small independent shops hidden away in small quirky back street, a little maze of shops around each turn. Choccywoccydoodah's window displays are a must see.

A lot of jewelers and fairly expensive ones at that although quite a few also had second hand and vintage which was well priced. Had coffee outside in the sun which was enjoyable and bought some different birthday cards

If you're visiting Brighton you must browse around The Lanes. It has a variety of shops, but particularly jewellery. Have a visit to Choccywokkydodah - think that's how you spell it ha ha.
