Delightfully British, original cobbles & original shops. Plenty to peruse and coffee shops galore if the hill is too steep for you. The shops have exquisite gifts but everything is a bit pricey. The atmosphere is a delight, especially on a sunny day

Goodness this is one super steep hill!! In the centre of the old historic Lincoln the hill takes you up to the cathedral. Lined each side with interesting shops and cafes and restaurants, it is well worth a visit and also a rest to look in the shops. I love the signs put out by cafes encouraging you to stop... More

Steep hill takes you out of the shopping mall and into olde worlde Lincoln. Vintage shops, tea shops and curio shops with the odd speciality shop thrown in. Look up and see lovely old timbered buildings and look down onto old cobbles beneath your feet. The "very" steep hill will challenge you, but can be done at a steady pace... More

as the name implies, it is steep, most shops have steps and very narrow. probably half accessible from bottom and another quarter accessible from top. would not recommend powerh chair up. top end quite cobbledy road. either park up top or take tourist bus to top.

My first visit to Lincoln so I decided to walk from town to the cathedral. Can't be that bad I thought. Silly me, it's a killer when you are unfit or have problems with your knees etc. However, I did have a sense of achievement when I reached the summit even if I did need oxygen. I did also have...

I have lived in Lincoln for 16 years now and this city never fails with its truly old English architecture. the cathedral and castle with its Victorian prison inside the castle walls are sights to be enjoyed by all but a real treat is a walk down steep hill with its cobbled road and quaint little shops on either side...

Lincoln has a wealth of historical buildings which are mainly within a stones throw of each other. The usher gallery is certainly worth a visit but be aware Steep Hill lives up to its name, you could run out of puff

Not only a great street but full of wonderful and unusual shops. We often go ourselves and always take visitors who stay with us.

Steep Hill is one of the places, that's a must to see of a visit to the Cathedral area of Lincoln. I would how ever suggest you do this from the Cathedral end rather than the town, as its name implies it's a hard walk up it. There shops as you walk down and places to eat or get a... More
