The Lanes are a nice experience as they're very different to the typical shopping experience. However, a lack of signposting makes it extremely confusing as to where you're actually going, and we ended up in circle after circle. There was also just an abundance of jewellery shops, and we couldn't find other stores apart from restaurants and the chocolate shop.... More

Look out for the chocolate shop Choccywockydoodah, their advert for staff is a scream, read the bottom line. The area recollects York's inner shopping area of olde Watch out for pickpockets though as the footpaths a re narrow and get really... More

Big tip, go before 11am. Every lane and alley holds such delights, great deals, choices of places to buy gifts, food, jewellery and so much more for every budget. You could spend a day in the lanes but as they are narrow and fill up with people quickly so start as early as possible. What is so great about this... More

Ok... yes it is busy and crowded but the lanes are well worth visiting ... even if for fifteen minutes. There are some cafes, cake shops and shops that sell random bits and pieces. The lanes are narrow and full of character ... a great place to step into the shade.

What a beautiful place so quaint real old world but with modern shops, great for food of all types, the pub drinks are cheaper than the hotels.

Lots of alleyways and passages to browse, plenty of places to eat and drink when you need a break, unusual shops and well known designer brands, so much with so little time to do it in. Great place, never bored.

A livery and fun place, lots of unusual shops and things going on. Not that many places to eat though apart from coffee shops and a few fast food places, but plenty of other places in Brighton.
