people are surprised that Lincoln has steep hill (Lincolnshire being in some parts quite flat) It's good to walk up, and has a handrail for those who need it,you can go off at intervals - to the Collection (museum) and art gallery, or to viewpoints and other curiosities. Lovely tea shops, especially Pimento, and many individual interesting shops. At the... More

Fudge, whisky, cards and fine meats are just a few of the things you can buy on Steep Hill. Don't be put off by the reviews about steepness if you are not up for the climb, come to it from the north rather than walk up from Lincoln. Access to the castle and the Minster, both worth a visit, but... More

Steep Hill links the middle of Lincoln to the picturesque Bailgate area with the Cathedral, Castle and boutique shops. It has some great little shops up it and some good places to eat and drink as well. Please note it's not for the fainthearted, up or down the centre section is steep and the whole is narrow and cobbled. Absolutely... More

There are independant old fashioned shops, this area is very historic with some lovely little coffee shops. You have to be quite energetic to climb Steep Hill not suitable for wheel chairs. Pay a visit to Lincoln information centre and ask for Kerri, she is very helpful.

Steep Hill is well named, it is very steep and for those of you who have mobility problems, not recommended. There is another way round by car to the castle and the cathedral at the top of Steep Hill so those two buildings are accessible for most. I have walked it about 10 times when we have had visitors and... More

This area is magical, the cobble street and individual shops are lovely. The top os Steep Hill leads into Castle Square; you look one way it's the castle and look the other there sits the magnificent Lincoln Cathedral. The area is steeped in history but also plenty of great eateries and bars, with some having the old English feel with... More

Old cobbled street with medieval buildings linking the newer end of Lincoln to the cathedral and castle. Diverse mix of very interesting individual shops, antiques, food, art, jewellery, books, clothing, cafés and eateries. Not suitable for wheelchairs or people with mobility difficulties. If walking up steep hills difficult for you, get the city hopper bus, stops dotted round lower town... More

There are some interesting shops on the steep hill area up into the Bailgate. Well worth looking at and the walk is good for you.

Steep Hill was voted best street in UK last year - it has wonderful shops and places to eat and links the modern city with the cultural part of the city.
