Great place to visit, lots of independent shops selling all manner of things you won’t find elsewhere. Also lots of coffee shops, bars and eateries. Well worth a visit for a browse.

It’s worth doing a bit of ‘Lanes/Laines’ research before coming to Brighton to find out a bit of history and what’s where… but I didn’t so here is my retrospective take on what I would have done :)

AREAS
In Brighton there are ‘two’ Lanes areas; The Lanes, immediately behind the seafront (see Google maps pic), and North Laine area slightly further North (!). (See pics). Both are within walking distance of the seafront. Both are better with good weather!

PARKING
If you are driving - either Trafalgar Street car park - North of North Laine or RCP Parking in between The Lanes & North Laine. Both are expensive.

NORTH LAINE
Quirky shops, carpets, antiques & vintage/second hand clothing etc. Head for North Laine Bazaar, Kensington Gardens (street) as this is the main place. Other streets are definitely worth a wander such as Gardner Street with its outdoor cafes, Cornish Pasty Shop, red snail and character gift shops.
We preferred this area to The Lanes.

GRAFFITI
If you’re into graffiti there’s loads of it about, so do a bit of Googling first and if up at the rail station, start with Prince Albert on Trafalgar Street….

Hope this helps…

After reading about this place, I made the decision to visit it. Since most of the streets were solely for pedestrians, it was pleasant to stroll about. There were several lovely stores around. Additionally, there were a few places to dine.

Spent so much time walking, wandering & spending here. With my 20yr old daughter - I think we went into every shop! Great area to spend time.

These laneways with their colour and lively vibe feels like the heart of Brighton. There is a vast range of independent shops, bars and eateries and is a great place to watch the passing throng. There are some surprises as well, such as the well-stocked homewares shop and the art gallery selling works by the likes of Banksy, David Hockney, and currently with a Pablo Picasso exhibition. This is a place not to miss when visiting Brighton.

Great area to visit. Lots of interesting independent shops, cafes etc. My children loved the bubble tea shops (there seemed to be a few!). Nice to see so many unique and interesting shops, loved the bonsai trees and street art! Would highly recommend visiting North Laine if you’re in Brighton, one of my favourite areas.

Plenty of places of interest. The North Laine and Royal Pavilion are a must. I am visually impaired and I was given an audio description aid for my trip around the pavilion, this was a brilliant addition and helped me enjoy the experience. Was on the beach for sunrise. Brilliant!!!

This area of small streets and independent shops and cafes is the most interesting in Brighton. It is still managing to keep its vibe, with an amazing mix of small shops selling new and vintage clothes and belongings, semi precious beads, crystals, veggie shoes, street fashion, beautiful flowers, and more. The mix of cafes offers all sorts of food, delicious veggie fare, cake treats, chidren's meals etc. In good weather many streets are traffic free and you can sit out with your coffee or meal. It's a fun place to wander through.
