Lovely roads, rather hectic and can get a bit too much during weekends.

Lots of different shops, with something for all tasted (my missus more than mine, but one chooses his battles....) Also plenty of places to eat, with something to suit most palates and wallets.

I love Brighton lanes in the summer, there's something about the old streets and quirky shops that shows off the real beauty of Brighton. Every corner you turn there's something new and exciting!

Lots of cute shops and restuarants to be found here. You might find yourself wondering in circles to find every little street
