Do not confuse these with the North Laines. They are very central and have small shops, quirky shops, restaurants and brand shops like Clark’s, French Connection, Karen Miller etc. The restaurants are varied and pleasant and at the bottom part of these are generally people...More

The Lanes is like turkish bazaar. It is a series of lanes with restaurants, coffee houses, jewellers and craft shops. You never know what you might uncover at every turn. A fascinating place to wander.

This area seems to be struggling nowadays. There were lots of boarded up shops which is unusual for Brighton. Felt a bit unloved really. The cafes on the square were busy and doing a good trade but I won't be back in a hurry.

Little cosy alleys in the centre of Bristol with shops ( a lot of jewel shops), coffee houses, bars etc.. Can be very busy but nice part of town.

Greater place to find somewhere to eat and small local shops means some personal care from shop owners available very nice antic shops

You can just pop in. Most are really happy to help you out. Make sure you haggle.

The Lanes is a host of independent traders who open (as you'd imagine) independently. Some of the cafes open earlier for breakfasts but most of the jewellery shops start opening up around 10am
