My Favourite Shopping Destination in Brighton: the North Laines


“North Laine is a shopping and residential district of Brighton, on the English south coast immediately adjacent to the Royal Pavilion. Once a slum area, nowadays with its many pubs and cafés, theatres, and museums, it is seen as Brighton’s bohemian and cultural quarter.” (Wikipedia)

Last summer I received a grant again to improve my English, but this time I chose Brighton.

It is a singular town, a place of surprises, but living there gives you the opportunity of knowing it much better. Despite this, I had to study a lot (I’m preparing to be an official teacher in Madrid) I always had my cameras with me, and on my walk home or to the library I used to take pictures of everything I saw.

The North Laines start immediately where the Royal Pavilion Gardens end.

It is an incredible place to get lost through the streets, to walk very slowly enjoying each shop window, to have a coffee in one of its terraces. If you like vintage or second-hand clothes, without a doubt this is your shopping place.
