“Something different”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

We were in Brighton for a writing convention and took the opportunity to do some exploring in The Lanes. From a pen shop to a funky joke shop, from tea shops to expensive jewellers, the narrow streets had it all and every turn seemed to open up to new treasures. Historic, fun and bohemian, this is a great place to visit and spend some time.

“Charming and traditional”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

We loved The Lanes on our recent trip to Brighton. Situated a row back from the sea front, you could be forgiven for thinking that you were in an old fashioned village rather than in the heart of Brighton. It's really great to see so many independent shops and restaurants (although the bigger high street names can be found) and you just have a feeling of being transported back to the good old days of proper pubs and corner shops providing quality service and products. It really is a must see on a visit to Brighton and next time we would like to experience the night life of the Lanes.

“Not to be missed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

The Lanes have not earned their reputation as a "must see destination" for nothing. There are so many delightful little shops and stores tucked away within a seagull's cry of the beach. A visitor would be foolish to miss the opportunity to visit this famous location.
