Charming cafes, shops and pubs in a historical area. A must see, when in Brighton. Easy to walk through, with helpful signage and amenities.

I was a bit disappointed as all the shops were the same, how much gold can you look at?. I was expected something a little bit more quaint and varied.

We visited The Lanes on a Saturday so it was very crowded. There are a lot of higher-end shops here and it's fun to window shop. I would suggest visiting North Laines before coming to this spot.

Lots of fabulously fun and quirky shops with an atmosphere to match. The only problem I had was not bringing quite enough money to fully take advantage!
