The Lanes

Once the heart of the old fishing town, Brighton's historic quarter is an intricate maze of twisting alleyways with an extraordinary mix of antiques, jewellery, interior design and famous labels. In the hidden squares, elegant arcades and winding passages, you can find bespoke perfumes and fragrant herbs mixing with freshly roasted coffee and the aroma of Italian cooking. A pebble's throw from the beach and the Royal Pavilion, you can soak up Brighton's history in the graceful Regency architecture, 400 year old fishermen's cottages, quaint old pubs, brick-paved streets and flint stone walls. Coffee (and tea) culture has hit The Lanes in the chic new cafés and there are plenty of eating places from seafood specialities to gourmet vegetarian. Whether it's serious shopping you're after or a relaxed al fresco lunch, The Lanes has a distinct and very cosmopolitan appeal.

Bordering the The Lanes and the North Laines is North Street, the main 'high street' that runs through the centre of Brighton. Here you can find the usual shops such as Mango, Snappy Snaps, Body Shop, The Pier and Boots alongside a few more unusal stores like Kurt Geiger Shoes and LOMBOK interiors.
