An ancient steep hill with small, interesting shops, having to climb the hill to admire the views across the city. Plenty of tea shops, book shops & scencery/candle shops to admire along the cobbled road/street.

Steep Hill is just that, a VERY steep hill BUT there are loads of great little cafes and shops on it and it is well worth the effort to climb up and see the Castle at the top. We generally park at he top, walk down into the centre of town fir shopping and then walk back up, stopping for... More

This route from the Cathedral to the town is downhill with some delightful shops to browse into and well worth stopping off for a cup of tea. To walk from the Cathedral to the city of Lincoln is a very leisurely 15 to 20 minutes but well worth it.

This beautiful city is centred around Steep Hill, which is the heart of the historical area. The cathedral is magnificent, and so serene and calming. The shops lining the strret are pretty and varied, and tea shops abound. Restaurants too, are prolific here, and you have the castle just around the corner. Plenty to see for history buffs and pilgrims... More

It is steep but it's covered in quaint shops. Normally I go at Christmas but going at this time if year, you could really enjoy the peace of Lincoln.

It's a hill. It's steep. And it is crammed with a broad array of unique shops ranging from olde worlde confectioners to quaint cafes, whisky specialists, book shops and designer boutiques. With the castle and cathedral and some top drawer restaurants also on Steep Hill you will not be short of things to do and cultural opportunities. A concentrated piece... More

Well worth the walk up 'steep hill' and embrace in the ancient history of Lincoln City. At the top leads you to the Castle wall/grounds and the Magna Carta and Lincoln Cathedral as well as other historical buildings.

A great selection of shops up this hill. Of particular note is "The Cheese Society" just below Steep Hill. Not for the faint-hearted if heading uphill

Definitely steep - good thing they have benches going up. It's a test on the legs for sure, but so very worth it. There are some gorgeous little shops on the way up that are definitely worth popping in to see. I'd recommend Lincoln all over.
