This area contains a great variety of shops ,restaurants and pubs. Walking around made us feel like we had gone back in time. The victory bar is a great place to stop for a refreshment while touring the area.

A fun place to stroll and do some shopping and walking around. The restaurants in the area are good too. Just wished the shops stayed open a bit longer, especially during the summer night.

Always wanted to wander around the lanes of Brighton, but was a little disappointed. Felt it needed a good scrub! There was litter all over the place too. We did a lot of window shopping for diamonds though!

A warren of vendors for all interests, each lane offers broad selections of shops, food and art. Definitely worth ambling through.

Lovely quaint area to get a sense of Brighton's past but leave your shopping and coffee for when you visit the Laine's just across North road.

Quaint, but too many jewellery shops! A few photo opportunities and some sweet looking cafes though. :-) I preferred The Shambles in York.

i have never been to brighton before and i certainly wasnt disappointed, the lanes area was a must, so many people had told me to go, it had beautiful quaint shops, it was pedestrianised with cobbled little lanes and passages, its definitely a must when...More

I enjoyed shopping in the lanes, very quaint. A very different experience than normal shops. I would highly recommend a stroll though them.

Had a tattoo at Inka with the amazing Rosie May, hand poked specialist. She has done a sterling job and my tattoo is everything I wanted and more. She is also a smashing human. Whole team and vibe is phenomenal.

Yes most definitely and people are friendly and helpful if needing direction. There is a map of the lanes opp The Breakfast Club which by the way is very good for breakfast 😊

There are a number of good ones, so hard to pick just one, some have some great cakes in the window so you can gage it from that, enjoy
