Quirky shops of various price ranges. Really good to browse through on a rainy day. Definitely a place to visit and mooch around.

The lanes need to be visited. This historic area is full of small shops, pubs and restaurants covering almost every known cuisine and has some very ancient buildings tucked away. The shops tend to keep normal-ish hours but the pubs and restaurants are open into the late evening and it would be very unusual if at least some of these... More

The Brighton Lanes are one of the countries best hot spots for shopping. I first fell in love with the Lanes when we were shopping for my engagement ring. The Lanes are a must for any jewellery lover (especially antique). Myself and my husband have returned time and time again to shop, eat or relax by the sea.

If it wasn't for nice corners and open areas to sit and eat or have a drink I would have been really disappointed with how commercial this area is. It's all high street shops found in any town or city, so nothing particularly special.

Whenever I am in Brighton I always make it a point to spend a couple of hours wandering through the lanes. The shops are individual, and you can often find little hidden treasures. If you love antiques, boutiques and brick a brack, this is the place for you.
