Taxi up and walk down from the castle. Had to laugh at the young lady in her early 20s staggering down in high heels. Steep hill us certainly that

A delightful cobbled hill leading upwards from Modern Lincoln in to the older and more quaint part of the city. Steep Hill has many delightful shops, tea rooms and restaurants so there is no shortage of places to stop for a rest on the way up! Worth the walk to the top as it leads to the impressive Cathedral and... More

It is a joy to walk up or down this old street in the heart of traditional Lincoln, with fascinating architecture and still some traditional independent shops plus an artists co-operative which we love

Yes, it was steep, but looking around to see the old medieval houses made it bearable and even enjoyable. I wish that there were a short information about the Jew Houses on them. To feel the atmosphere long ago is possible with knowledge, and just a short writing could have helped a lot.

Lots to see and do. Be prepared to walk up some fairly challenging gradients, but well worth the effort.

Beutiful, classic England. Amazing Restaurants, Cafes and shops all the way up. Its not called Steep Hill for irony, be prepared to break out a sweat. Not for the old or infirm. Picture postcard stuff from the Strait at the bottom to the Castle Square, Cathedral and Bailgate at the Top. A must visit, dont chicken out half way up,... More

Warning, make sure you wear sensible walking shoes before you take the journey up Steep Hill. A beautiful street, very quaint, historic and beautiful shops. I have it on my bucket list to visit at Christmastime as I understand the street is lined with amazing market stalls. Worth the climb.

Really lovely to wander through 'old lincoln'. Quaint streets, lovely gift shops, a selection of great cafes. The cathedral and castle are well worth a visit.
