much easier walking down than up, but well worth it as the shops and tearooms are just stunning. You might need to stop half way up for a rest.

It is incredibly steep and cobbled, so I found it difficult. As someone who walks with a stick and having no pre warning about just how steep and how long it goes on for, did catch me unawares. I had to stop several times just to make it all the way up. Some lovely shops to see on the way.

Absolutely beautiful street but definately not for anyone with a dodgy ticker. Shops and eateries galore.

As the name suggests this very steep hill goes from the lower town to the old town, castle and cathedral at the top. There are many little interesting shops selling a wide variety of things, tea rooms, cafés and restaurants. The hugely varying architecture of the buildings is very interesting.

Visited Lincoln yesterday and walked down Steep Hill, and yes its very very steep. Easy going down but wow a little tricky coming back up. Well worth the effort though a lovely range of shops, cafes on the way down on both sides. Some really nice gift shops with very unusual products, so easy to stop off for a look... More

Steep cobbled street that gets steeper the further you go. Filled with indie shops and chains alike.. the hill leads to the castle at the top and more shops to get stuck in to. Definitely worth the trek up the hill.

After going up and down it for two days, I now know why it has that name. Perfectly fitting. Saying that it shows how old this part of Lincoln is, beautiful little shops on both sides, all different, pleased we were able to see and do it.

The clue is in the name, the hill is very stew but the shops along the hill are all very quaint and pretty! Worth a visit.
