Lots of lovely and quirky shops which are just fun to browse even if you're not there to buy. I visit them constantly and always bring along friends or family who are visiting. Never get bored of walking through.

So many quirky and independent shops in the area that we kept coming across new ones almost by accident. Spent two days looking round and still think we hadn't seen them all. Will definitely have to return to finish exploring this area.

I may be biased i have grown up in around the lanes. Head to the north lanes for vintage, quirky, individual and amazing shops. Head to the south lanes for jewellery and up market. Even if you don't shop you must wander. Trust me its magical. At night the bars and restaurants come alive.

The Lanes are part of the original fishing village with narrow streets and fascinating buildings. Parts have been updated, unfortunately in my opinion. However, there are some very good eating places and a lively atmosphere, typical of Brighton

I love the lanes. Found in the heart of Brighton just off the high street. There are small shops, jewellers etc and cafes to get lost in something for everyone. Can be a bit claustrophobic in the heart of the lanes as it can get very busy and the lanes are quite narrow.

Beautiful shops along narrow lanes at Brighton, walking distance from the beach and Brighton Pier. We spent hours browsing through the shops. Interesting experience. Recommended for all visitors to Brighton.

This is a can't miss Brighton experience and most people visiting Brighton will head for The Lanes. And for that treason I suspect it has become a bit of a tourist trap, not necessarily offering the unique bargains we hope for! But still pleasant, with plenty of eating places.

Ideal for a stroll - street after street of small shops - jewellery a-plenty and loads of quaint pubs and eateries - charming and full of character.

If you've never been to Brighton then you're missing out. One of my favourite places to go for a day/weekend out. Loads of lovely, independent shops, cafes & restaurants. Wherever you're looking for, you will find it in Brighton ❤️
