We spent the day in Brighton looking around all the interesting shops and boutiques. Lots of places to eat and kill some time.

An interesting view of what Brighton was like in its early days. Now full of jewellers and restaurants. Worth a wander through.

Great place for a browse . Lots of jewellery shops to grab a bargain but be careful as with everywhere there are some unscrupulous dealers . If you want great jeweler try finch jewelers and ask for Sarah. Lovely lady who knows her stuff , very approachable and friendly with some outstanding pieces but no pressure to buy. Cannot rate...

The shops here are very interesting we could spend hours looking round the shops full of modern, shabby chic and unusual gifts. Lots of little lanes that must have a lot of history. Worth a walk around

As someone who hates shopping, then the Lanes is the one place that I actually like. Fantastic range of interesting local retailers and restaurants - be warned however. It gets incredibly busy during peak periods.

There's still plenty of independent shops and places to visit even though the chains are starting to creep in.

Wanted to visit an Antique shop I saw on TV, also love having a browse, plenty to see, shops new and second hand goods, flea markets. Plenty of places to eat, catering for all tastes, a few buskers, playing varied music. Busy as it was a Saturday, warm enough to sit outside and eat or drink, soak in the atmosphere,... More

....then perfect for you as The Lanes are now 95% jewellery shops. We found a wonderful shop of old prints & a great window of incredibly sweets and cakes, but not much else.
