I remember the lanes from a few years ago with lots of small independent shops and jewellery shops. They are still there but sadly some of the old craft type shops have gone and been replaced by the usual high street stores.

Lots of little shops mainly jewelry shops. In fact 95% are. Lovely quaint lanes to walk round and definitely worth a visit when coming to Brighton.

The Lanes is a host of independent traders who open (as you'd imagine) independently. Some of the cafes open earlier for breakfasts but most of the jewellery shops start opening up around 10am
