“narrow streets and bespoke shops”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

Lots of lovely little independent shops scattered around the narrow 'lanes'. Reminded me a bit of the Rambles in York. Probably gets very busy in summer, but if you are out shopping (if only window shopping), it's worth a look

“The Lanes didn't live up to expectation”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

Having not been to Brighton for some time, I was looking forward to meandering around the Lanes for a few hours and finding some quirky shops, but was disappointed to find very few interesting places to look in. There were lots of cafes and so on, but little else. I was later told I needed to wander further into the north Lanes, so try this when you're visiting.

“Fascinating Shops”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

No wonder the late great Sir Henry Cecil shopped in the lanes when he had horses running at Brighton Racecourse.Our first visit to The Lanes ,definitely not the last.
