- It’s worth doing a bit of ‘Lanes/Laines’ research before coming to Brighton to find out a bit of history and what’s where… but I didn’t so here is my retrospective take on what I would have done :)
In Brighton there are ‘two’ Lanes areas; The Lanes, immediately behind the seafront (see Google maps pic), and North Laine area slightly further North (!). (See pics). Both are within walking distance of the seafront. Both are better with good weather!
If you are driving - either Trafalgar Street car park - North of North Laine or RCP Parking in between The Lanes & North Laine. Both are expensive.
Quirky shops, carpets, antiques & vintage/second hand clothing etc. Head for North Laine Bazaar, Kensington Gardens (street) as this is the main place. Other streets are definitely worth a wander such as Gardner Street with its outdoor cafes, Cornish Pasty Shop, red snail and character gift shops.
We preferred this area to The Lanes.
If you’re into graffiti there’s loads of it about, so do a bit of Googling first and if up at the rail station, start with Prince Albert on Trafalgar Street….
Hope this helps…Written 5 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- The pier was constructed in Victorian times and today contains something for all ages. As well as seats to admire the sea views ( it was a lovely, sunny day), visitors find bars, restaurants, arcades, stalls and rides. It could be a costly venture but you can buy wristbands to save some money. Worth a visit!Written 31 October 2023
- Brighton is a wonderful place to visit with the beach and the shops. The seaside restaurants are very good and there are scores of shops catering for everyone. I highly recommend a day trip to Brighton form London or even a longer stay in BrightonWritten 29 October 2023
- Great views of Brighton. Quite expensive for the experience as it doesn’t last very long. Expensive bar inside the pod.Written 15 October 2023
- I regularly either ride my bike up here or walk my dog up here.
I love this place and it always clears my head when I’m up here walking my dog.
Perfect place to relax and forget about the world,this place has so much history and also incredible views.
My go to place if I have a spare few hours or a day off from the grind.
I can’t wait to return for another walk with my dog.Written 28 October 2023
- Took my husband and son on the stadium tour who are huge Brighton fans. Dom was our guide and he was amazing,very informative!
My son loved seeing where his team walks though the tunnel and the changing rooms. It is such a beautiful building. We would book againWritten 26 November 2023
- Pleasant level walk on a wide concrete path. Quite unique walking under high chalk cliffs. Beware these cliffs are slowly eroding and signage alerts to falling chalk/flint. Birds must nest and make the cracks and crevices their homes. At high tides, stones are washed upon the walkway. Nice area for a stroll, hike, walk your dogs, jog or run, as there is plenty of room for all.Written 14 September 2023
- Nice aquarium with some unique species. Quite small but architecturally very impressive and the world’s oldest aquarium!We had a good visit to the aquarium and saw some unique inhabitants (including a giant turtle and upside down jellyfish). The building is architecturally very impressive but the attraction is quite small. For the price, it felt a bit expensive for what was there. That said, this is still a good attraction to visit in Brighton and a great way to escape the rain (and see the world’s oldest aquarium!!).Written 10 November 2023
- I visited with my children aged 13 and 11 during a trip to Brighton. Interesting museum and a good place to spend an hour or so. The absolute highlight for us all was the excellent Roger Bamber exhibition. Wonderful to see so many of his photographs and other items in one place, a really fascinating insight to his life and career. Really glad we saw this exhibition, very thought provoking.
The rest of the museum was also interesting, particularly the ‘Queer Brighton’ exhibition, clothing and historical references. Worth a visit. Staff friendly and helpful. Kids loved the table football!Written 14 April 2023
- I had a chicken dansak and Bombay aloo. It was the best I’ve had and I have one quite regularly at various takeouts. The chicken was cooked really well and not dry and the sauce was a great lentil mix of sweet and sour spices. I would recommend this place and they were super friendly.Written 10 September 2023
- Our guide was excellent. He had researched a lot of the history Brighton Police and was good at answering qyuestions. Next time that you want something to do for about an hour and a half in Brighton,for a very reasonable cost, please book a tour.Written 2 December 2023
- Been to the Dome many time and always enjoyed coming. Plenty of leg room, goodview of the stage, plus friendly and helpful staff. Seats start of seeming comfortable not some reason by the end I have a num bum. Overall there is definitely no need to worry about this venue.Written 1 December 2023
- Sitting proudly on the reception counter sits Ollie who gives us very warm greetings to one of Brightons hidden gems under the main Train Station. On hand is his carer who is so enthusiastic and knowledgeable. She has great fun telling us about her Spider! Well worth a visit with such an eclectic mix of toys from a bygone era.Written 12 November 2023
