More pubs and places to eat and shop than you could think. Always clean and mainly friendly...... Quirky Brighton of yesteryear meets today's commercialism. Great place to go been many many times.

I love the lanes, it's a perfect way to spend an afternoon strolling around finding a hidden little restaurant, coffee shop or cafe. The shops are all very vintage looking, it's almost like a little step back in time. Our biggest mistake (being out of towners) was going on a wet bank holiday day weekend, it was very very busy...

Lovely little area close to the seafront, full of little shops, many of which being jewellers which did become a bit boring after the first dozen! Some nice little coffee shops, souvenir shops and the best homemade fudge shop I've come across. Bought a selection of their range and thoroughly enjoyed them all so will be calling in to restock...

Perfect for a casual stroll into a world of small cornershops, lovely restaurants and fancy juweliers. Recommended for cosy restaurants and a stroll on a sunny day.

I am always amazed each time I go to the Lanes, I find something new. Whether it be a new cafe, shop or bar. Perfect for a wander around in the week. they get very busy at weeks and during summer months, so perfect for a visit in the spring. Great for arts, jewellery and eating out.

Like a trip down memory lane with quaint olde worlde shops selling jewellery, apparel and more. Perfect for couples looking for that special gift or that trendy one off gift for a friend. Well worth a meander on a visit to Brighton

we always end up in the lanes, a great place to while away the time. Stop for a drink, to eat or shop and you'll have a great time. We were part of a movie this time we visited, it's always interesting and fun. It's safe too, never seen any trouble.

A must to see when in Brighton, especially if you like jewellery. Cost little lane ways twisting and turning, lots of cafes and shops nestled in between. It is only a small area to cover and I would highly recommend.

The Lines is a really charming place. During peak hours, here is very noisy and crowded. But here everyone can find something for everyone. From the charming small Italian cafes along with interesting goods shops, boutiques with original clothes. This place lives his life. It is really worth to come here and find a souvenir from the shop or eat... More
