“Lovely for a wander”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

We had a lovely wander around the shops for a few hours on an overcast morning. Lots of lovely different shops to look around and the decorated shop fronts make it completely unique.

“Junk shoppers dream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

There's a splendid shop called Snoopers Paradise in Kensington Gardens which is like a glorified car boot sale but with higher prices. Still, many interesting finds to be... er...found and I came away with several items of junk!

“too much rubbish!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Trying to replicate The Lanes doesn't work for me. Too crowded and too much rubbish on sale! Good for youngsters, though?

“A wonderful, bohemian area of indie shops, cafes and bars”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

In the sunshine, the North Laines are a fabulous place to wander around. Lovely little bars, cafes and indie shops. On a Saturday there's an open market selling all manner of knick-knacks and the place is packed out. Definitely worth a visit when you're in Brighton or if you're looking to find a slightly off the beaten track present for friends or family.

“Looking for something different”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

The North Laine area of Brighton is north of The Lanes and occupies an area to the south east of the station and can be accessed from the left of Queens Road or the left of North Street. The area has a rather bohemian feel and has plenty of shops that provide a range of products that do not appear in the bigger shops. As well as antiques you can also find unique gifts often from ethnic sources. It is great to wander round and has nice bistros where you can eat. Kensington Gardens has an interesting variety of shops. The area has got some great pubs serving fine beer
