The North Laine is a fun place to explore. There's every kind of shop you would ever need. From second hand book shops, to fabric shops, second hand and vintage shops, wacky touristy shops and some really great eateries.

As a local . I find walking the lanes a real pleasure. There are so many quirky shops you do not get in mainstream shopping venues. There are plenty of coffee shops/ light bite eateries/ restaurants/Pubs to satisfy almost everyone. I dare say shops to cater for the majority of people. Take a stroll and you will be rewarded.

I love the atmosphere here and all the independent shops full of unique vintage pieces! Also the photo booth in snoopers paradise is a must for a visit it's £3 and takes 4 photos in black and white but I love the way they look! 😊

A great selection of quirky and unusual shops (and people). It's a proper shopping experience as opposed to what you get in today's Identikit Shopping Centres. What struck me most was the large number of independent records shops - I could have been lost for days in them. Great stuff!

Down in the North Lanes you can expect to see a variety of Gold and Dimond shops, but there are also a few other little places nestled in-between which are very nice too. I visited a gold dealer and purchased a reasonably priced white-gold chain and had a very pleasant experience with own of the staff. I also visited a... More

This is a great place to stroll along window shopping; though not many people manage to do its length without look at, if not buying some interesting item. There are shops, restaurants and cafes that suit all groups and nationalities.

great shopping! Unusual and unique stores. Try Sugarhill Boutique Outlet on Sydney Street for great deals on dresses, To be worn again and Dirty Harrys for vintage, gunns for flowers, flock for quirky handmade and snoopers for everything weird and wonderful and secondhand

Obviously best going when it is not raining although there are plenty of shops to wander into. There are some great dress shops selling 40's dresses as well as others at reasonably prices. We enjoyed the visit overall.

Whereas The Lanes has become overtaken by High Street chains, the 'Laines' still has a large number of independent traders with second hand clothes stalls, Antique shops and jewellery stalls. It's fascinating and well worth a visit.
