We were invited to have lunch with friends, and I was sorry that we did not have time to visit The Blackbird Tearooms - they look lovely and quirky, and the prices are very reasonable, too.

The Lanes are a fantastic way to idle away a few hours. Whether you are shopping, looking for antiques or just fancy sitting out watching the world go by from a café, its worth your while.

I love the Lanes in Brighton. Brighton is a great city with a very relaxed culture. The shops are all individual and unique. It's a must see, however parking is expensive. There's also plenty of restaurants to eat at.

Set over several streets, or "Lanes" as known colloquially, the area provides a huge range of independent and aspirational shopping venues that range from shabby chic to artisan outlets. Great for meandering through an often carnival atmosphere and enjoying the many cafés and food outlets.

This must be one of Brighton's hidden jem's as I live about 12 miles away, visited Brighton several times, but only discovered "The Lanes" today, by accident. Each and every Lane has several shops selling anything from jewelry, clothes, antiques and bric-a-brac (check out Snoopers Paradise with over 7000 sq. ft. of displays on 2 floors) and C.D.Weston Ltd. for...
