The Lanes in Brighton

A photo of a jewellery shop and people in Brighton Lanes.

Once the heart of the old fishing town of Brighthelmstone, The Lanes, Brighton's historic quarter is an intricate maze of twisting alleyways, offering an extraordinary mix of history and heritage lingering amidst the antique, jewellery, boutique fashion and design shops.

Soak up the history of Brighton Lanes

A pebble's throw from the beach and the Royal Pavilion, its easy to lazily soak up The Lanes history. Four hundred year-old fishermen's cottages and flint stone exteriors sit alongside cosy pubs and brick-paved twittens, whilst the spirit of royal, literary and cinematic connections of a bygone age remain in the air.

Wander through Black Lion Lane, once allegedly the escape route of Charles II, or meander into Quadrophenia Alley - a nod to the Mods and Rockers of the 60s and a key scene in the cult film Quadrophenia.

Crammed with quaint and wonderous shops, restaurants and cafes, you'll also often find buskers livening up the streets.
