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

We had a short trip to the Lanes and it's one of the parts of Brighton that's made us want to go back. Plenty to explore and lovely little tea rooms and boutiques to go around!

The Lanes are the best part of urban Brighton: a labyrint of streets with many coffees, restaurants, pubs and shops. It`s a good place to see and eat, and expend some money also.
