FROM SKANKY TO SWANKY

North Laine is an amazing area with a wealth of interesting and unique shops, studios, fabulous restaurants, galleries and markets ~ there is a special Brighton buzz that can't be copied.

With the 1840's railway boom, this area developed into the industrial heart of Brighton. During the 1970s people living alternative lifestyles moved in and fought against plans to demolish the area. We'll show you the site of the infamous punk rock venue The Vault, the world famous vegetarian shoe shop and much more. We'll point out wonderful street art and fine architectural details and take you to little streets and corners that only Brightonians know.
