The Lanes

South of North Street Brighton England

The narrow, medieval-style streets and narrower twittens (alleyways) of the Lanes hark back to the days when Brighton was a fishing village called Brighthelmston. In the 1970s and 80s, they were full of antique furniture sellers, china dealers and jewellers, but since then the chain boutiques have moved in. Many interesting specialist shops remain, though, and you’ll often see couples gazing at engagement rings in the few remaining jewellers’ windows.
