The best thing about The Lanes is of course the variety of shops, restaurants and bars which have sadly all but disappeared from most high streets. Great to just ignore any maps and wander at leisure and enjoy the atmosphere.

So glad these quaint narrow, historic lanes are part of the Brighten experience. You don't have to buy anything, as it's wonderful looking. But I have to admit I bought some crumbly delicious fudge. There are old pubs, a lot of jewellery shops, artsy things,...More

It's easy to get lost in the Lanes. I love all the independent shops - it's very Brighton and it's great!

hi ya we always park in the marina car park which is free all day. It's a huge car park so plenty of spaces. It only takes about 20 to walk to the lanes from there and is a really nice walk
