OK if you want to buy jewellery!
Nov 2021
I was recommended to visit The Lanes as it was "full of interesting little shops" - well, I spent a long time looking for these interesting shops but failed to find many!
The area seems to have been taken over by jewellery shops (new and secondhand) all charging rather high prices and I was advised by one shop owner, that they were trying to copy theJewellery Quarter in Birmingham. (The famous quarter in Birmngham has been there for a long time and I have visited on many occasions to buy jewellery and have special items made to my specifications.)
There are also a lot of bars and cafes, (not forgetting empty shops) but there are a few interesting places; an antique armoury shop was fascinating, a rubber duck shop, a leather clothing shop and so on but it is not as good as I thought if would be.

Interesting amble.......
Nov 2021 • Couples
You really can relax and while away the hours wondering around the lanes, they are quite unique I feel.

Shop after funky indie shop driven by art, culture, upcycle and latest trends in all manner of things from jewellery to sofas and vinyl records to plant pots. Outside of this a vibrant cafe scene keeps the quality high and value good...pubs are dotted through the lanes for a longer thirst quenching drink.

More a place to eat
Oct 2021
An interesting walk around but we were expecting many independent shops rather than it being so overrun with cafes, pubs and restaurants. So useful if you want to eat more than shop, however, when we were there in October there was a lot of rubbish piling up in the area making it less than pleasant whcih was a shame

Diverse shops something for everyone

Lots of diverse shops, friendly people, easy to make your way around, nice lanes and not intimidating to walk through, something for everyone. Definitely one of my favourite city's to shop at as everything feels familiar.

Brightons real marketplace

Visited many times and it doesn't cease to appeal. I had trouble getting my wife away from the many jewellers shops and duplicated shops owing to disorientation. Will always visit when in Brighton.

Dirty!
Oct 2021 • Couples
Very sad to go to Brighton yesterday, the place was covered and I mean covered in rubbish. The bins had clearly not been collected for some time and the walk from the train station to the beach to the Lanes was ruined. Don't know whether it's a one-off issue or a council leadership problem, but something needs to be done. The place was dirty, graffiti everywhere, seagulls pecking at rubbish bags. There'll be a huge rat problem if not sorted soon. A lovely place to visit usually, maybe it's the effects of Covid, I don't know.

Loved the lanes, so many things to see around each corner. Worth the walk around, each step is a new site. Quirky little area
