If looking for jewellery there is loads of choice. We visited on a Tuesday and it wasn't too busy, have previously been on a Saturday and it gets very crowded.

We had not visited Brighton before but had an idea (based on very little fact and mostly supposition) of what to expect. The Lanes were spot on, a great place to wander around, enjoy coffee and cake, buy everything from statues of Pu Tai to Crombie's and drain pipes. Splendid.

Over the past decade, many of the antique shops have been replaced with clothing and health and beauty shops, but it is still great to get lost in the alleyways and grab a coffee.

I absolutely love shopping in the lanes in Brighton! quirky, with a great variety of stuff especially if you are looking for silver jewelery or music( which is my favourite things to shop for!) There are different shops to cater for different needs as well as great restaurants for the hungry! make sure you visit the lanes on a visit... More

The Lanes - the name says it all. Narrow oldyworldy streets packed with a variety of non-chain, quality, quirky shopping; dotted with old Pubs, coffee shops, cafes and fine Dinning. Brighton has streets littered with same old same old retail chains, however it had this little Gem sandwiched between sea front and the lower high street. Great for browsing. Serious... More
