This is well worth a visit but take a full pocket as you are sure to find something to buy. All styles here. Very funky. Alternative eateries. Quite far from train station and parking is very expensive.

We started, as we always do, behind the hotel at Ship Street and walked through to Brighton Square and out towards the Pavillion. Crossing the main road, we entered the North Lanes with shops ranging from Querky to Strange. There is a shortage of public...More

Diverse mix of shops selling variety of goods / services / food. Ramshackle but that's the style. Popular with the locals and tourists and good place to buy something unusual.

I felt that the vibrant heart of the city was located in those winding little streets. Numerous pubs and restaurants. Just get lost in there and enjoy

Lovely interesting area for shopping/ eating. I recommend more eating and less shopping otherwise you could spend much more than you would like. So many interesting unique shops, we are definitely returning and with our teenagers.

Wander, wander, wander and you'll wonder where the time went. So many interesting little shops you'll get carried away. Okay, you're lost, but no worries, you'll soon spot a main street at the end of a narrow one, with luck. Enjoy. We did.

Some really lovely shops with a wide variety of merchandise. I loved the old narrow cobbled streets. Take plenty of money, there's loads of great stuff but it isn't cheap!

You can just pop in. Most are really happy to help you out. Make sure you haggle.

The Lanes is a host of independent traders who open (as you'd imagine) independently. Some of the cafes open earlier for breakfasts but most of the jewellery shops start opening up around 10am
