Lovely wandering around the Lanes this past weekend. Always fun with lots to see and enjoy. Many options for cake and coffee and lots of independent shops to explore.

We came to Brighton this saturday to get the festive feeling and enjoy the Christmas lights and atmosphere. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed with the lack of both. The Lanes, however, we did enjoy, and found it very quirky, and a special place. If one needed an unusual present or something out of the ordinary, then The Lanes, is the... More

Lots and lots of jewellery shops, all very expensive. Where's the variety? However, That Little Tea shop in the Lanes serves a good light meal and the raspberry hot chocolate is delicious.

Quirky shops, lots of variety with plenty of choice to suit every budget. Be prepared to walk and walk and still not see everything. Bonus, plenty of bars/restaurants/coffee shops to refresh you.

Great place to spend a few hours alone or with other browsing the shops. A good mixture of boutiques, funky shops and street stalls selling anything and everything. A few good homeware shops as well as shops selling novelty items, a great florist selling good value plants not only cut flowers etc. Definitely a place to go Christmas shopping for... More

Loved the Lanes ever since I knew that existed back in the early 60s. They have of course changed over the years but the essence is the same - generally small independent shops with the odd quirky area.
