Delimited by North Street to the north, East Street to the East, Prince Street to the south and Ship Street to the west, The Lanes occupies what was once the heart of the original fishing village of Brighthelmstone. It is characterised by its quaint, narrow, winding streets which are home, like the North Laine area, to a multitude of locally-owned boutiques and restaurants and cafés. Slightly more up market and commercial than North Laine, many an independent jeweller (who often have their studios above their shops) and antique dealer have set up shop here making it the ideal place to find an original souvenir to take home with you. In addition to the up market boutiques and designer stores, you'll find plenty of watering holes, such as the Bath Arms (the oldest licensed premises in the original lanes) and places to grab a bite to eat, especially around Brighton Square - a perfect spot for people-watching. The only one of the 'lanes' which does not date back to the late 18th century is Dukes Lane, which was built around 25 years ago.
