“fantastic setting”
Reviewed 22 September 2012

We had a wonderful time walking down the Lanes. The weather was helpful and we enjoyed window-shopping and just looking around. many street performers and a lively crowd completed the picture. We sat at a cafe which had set some tables outside and watched the people go by... great experience :) the boutiques are a bit on the expensive side but you can find some great bargains as well. Don't miss the Lanes (South and North)

“A little dissapointed”
Reviewed 22 September 2012

I remember coming to The Lanes many years ago when they were full of beautiful antique shops. Now it seems to have become more a cafe culture. Although there were some lovely looking places to eat, there was not much else.

“So much goes on in The Lanes”
Reviewed 17 September 2012

Whether you're shopping or people watching, there are so many places to sit and have a coffee or wander in and out of all the shops. Some shops have been there forever and new ones are popping up all the time. There's something for everyone

“Very interesting”
Reviewed 16 September 2012

The architecture, and the whole layout of The Lanes was very interesting to see. A lot of unique shops and people - but expensive compared to other stores and shops nearby. Not a tourist trap - but they know that people will be visiting and spending money...and items are priced accordingly.
