The Lanes Tours

A short stroll from Brighton Pier, the lively streets aptly known as ‘The Lanes’ are among Brighton’s most atmospheric, winding their way up from the waterfront to the heart of the historic town. Dating back to the 18th century, the narrow lanes were once home to hundreds of fishermen's cottages and their quirky, overhanging roofs were purpose-built to shelter the lanes from the coastal storms. Today, The Lanes retain much of their original character, with their old-fashioned shop fronts, brick-paved streets, flower-filled window boxes and maze of tiny alleyways, known locally as ‘twittens’,

The largely pedestrianized area is now one of Brighton’s most popular shopping quarters, crammed with over 200 independent shops including hip boutiques; artist’s workshops and galleries; jewelry and handicrafts shops; and antiques stores. The whole district is buzzing with life day and night, with buskers providing live entertainment, particularly during the summer months, and a great selection of cafés, patisseries, small restaurants and historic pubs.

Practical Info

The Lanes are located between North Street, Ship Street, Prince Albert Street and Bartholomew Square, just a short walk northwest of Brighton pier.
