Steep Hill is a very steep hill! It is cobbled and has railings in parts to help with your climb. Having said that it is more than manageable if you are able bodied and there are plenty of places to stop. There are lots of independent shops and tea rooms on the way and some very unusual places - the... More

This is a street from a bygone age. It has cobbles, quaint little shops and cafes and no (modern) high street chains - perfect! We walked up at least six times during our stay and, far from getting used to it, it seemed to get steeper each time! The views are worth the climb.

I love steep hill. It is the name suggests a steep hill but the character of this area is what makes Lincoln so special. The shops are independent with plenty of choice and something for everyone.
