I recommend going down it and getting the Walk & Ride bus back! Some nice shops and cafés in a very old setting. You need to be fit to go downhill, but it's worth it.

Very pleasant walk down to high street, on the way back it was a little strenuous, found plenty of coffee shop' s and tea room's to choose from.

Liked it a lot... would love to try cycling up Steep Hill... extremely difficult with a wheelchair user, in fact, I would strongly recommend an alternative route if you are in a wheel chair...

Steep Hill is like going back in time with lovely old pubs and restaurants at the top. Wonderful shops on the hill and more modern and some old pubs and restaurants at the bottom. It really is steep going back up is really an accomplishment.

Steep hill is a great street to walk across to get from the high street with all its shops to the cathedral/castle which sits on top of the hill. It has got some small shops along the side although there isn't anything too exciting. However,...More

Lord it is steep lol, but so worth it. The history of these narrow cobbled streets makes the journey worth while. You can hold on to railings but I suggest that if you have issues walking this isn’t the place to visit. Get a taxi...More
