Very steep indeed but the climb is compensated by lots of interesting and quirky shops that are not typical highstreet.There are also a lot of tempting tea,coffee ,cake and pubs so it is easy to take a leisurely stroll up or down.

Steep Hill is lovely for a slow wander. A rail is at the side to help anyone struggling. Lots of lovely independent shops, cafes and bars on the way to browse. Then you come to the Castle and Bailgate. Lovely day out.

There's a new Premiere Inn on the main road through Lincoln (A15). Thus gives great walking access to central Lincoln or there's another just at the top of Canwick Hill if that suits you.

No parking on steep hill bul lots up at the top and bottom. If you don't want to go too far start at the to snd park just off the bail gate. Worth it!
