“Excellent shopping”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

Great atmosphere and shops with loads to do and lots of little places to eat. Very busy and thriving part of Brighton and if you looking for something that little bit different this is the place to come.

“An afternoon easily taken care of”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

I live 5 minutes walk away from the North Laine and whenever we have visitors we always either take them down or point them in the direction. My personal favourite streets are Sydney Street and Kensington Gardens.

If you are a fan of high street chains, Gap, Topshop, H&M, Starbucks then this is not the place for you - however if you are looking for quirky and colourful independent shops and boutiques with a range of clothes and gifts that you will not find on the high street, as well as pavement culture cafes with unrivalled people watching opportunities - then go fill your boots!

My favourite shops are:
In House Space - Gloucester Road
Snoopers Paradise - Kensington Gardens
Edited - Gardner Street
Juju - Gloucester Road

Also look for the definition of the "North Laine" in the window of Juju - read and learn!!!
