Shopping in Brighton
Brighton is a great place for all your shopping needs. At The Lanes and the North Laine, shopaholics can go crazy and wild in Brighton’s own shopping walhalla. If you’re looking to put a creative edge into your shopping, Brighton Lanes offer a shopper’s paradise of independent shops and boutiques. Brighton Lanes’ historic quarter is a fabulous maze of twisting alleyways, twittens and catcreeps offering an extraordinary mix of antiques and jewellery shops nestling alongside specialist contemporary and designer boutique fashion.
Crammed with quaint and wondrous shops and funky restaurants and cafes, the Brighton Lanes are best wandered lazily and explored as you find them.
You’ll often find buskers livening up the streets, making the Lanes a great place for the battle worn shopper to grab a coffee and soak up the history to the sounds of some live jazz.
