Stepping off The High Street into The Lanes will be a transformational experience. With architectural signatures of Brentford’s yards and warehouses, The Lanes have an altogether gentler pace, lined with small stores, emerging entrepreneurs and independent retailers. Goods spill out onto the paving, chairs are pulled round for impromptu conversation, and doors are opened by studios and workshops to share the tricks and the skills of their trade.
The Lanes are perfect for days that start without a plan. From the bustle of The High Street, you step into a more peaceful network of paved passageways that are a powerful evocation of Brentford’s past, and along which the stores and traders will reward those who take their time and arrive with a spirit of unquenchable curiosity.
