A change of pace just moments away
A change of pace just moments away

Stepping off the High Street into one of The Lanes will be a transformational experience. Borrowing an architectural signature from streets and stores of decades past, The Lanes have an altogether gentler pace, lined with the kind of small stores and emerging entrepreneurs, and independent retailers that Ballymore has a long and proud history of supporting in business – both here in the UK and abroad.

From the bustle and movement on the pavements of the high street, you step – in a single moment – into a more peaceful, familiar, series of paved, carefully laid out passageways. The water’s edge and open space is within reach, the sound of conversation lifted on the air, but the distractions and discoveries of The Lanes will reward your time and your curiosity.

The scale of The Lanes is altogether more personal, where the pace is slowed, and faces of traders and neighbours become familiar over time. On a quiet weekday morning sat with a coffee, catching up with a friend, waiting to be served, The Lanes are designed to blur the boundary between street and store.

Nothing quite beats the feeling of discovering a hidden gem. Whether it’s an old piece of vinyl, a fine first edition, or a new piece by an emerging artist, the emphasis is on modest stores filled with magical things run by passionate people.
