very steep walk up to the cathederal but there are a lot of cafes etc to stop for a coffee and a nice piece of cake. Make sure you wear trainers, flat and grippy!

Nuff said - would advise starting at the top and walking down - not the other way round -- ladies - wear flats not heels !!

It's called Steep Hill for a reason. It's a Hill and it's very Steep. However, it's well worth the effort. Loads of great quirky shops and interesting places along the route. Then when you get to the top an absolutely wonderful square with the most magnificent cathedral and a lovely castle (albeit in a state of renovation). I

The cobbled road of Steep hill is straddled by a seemingly endless row of unique shops and tea rooms. The buildings are mostly from an era when craftsmen built them and as such the character of the place is unique. Well worth the walk ( its not very long ) and there are so many distractions en-route to the top... More

It's a hill and it's steep. I would recommend this hill if steepness is what you are after. It may have changed hands over the centuries, but I think it is safe to say that it has remained consistently steep. For those of reduced mobility I would not recommend this hill unless you want to stop at the bottom and... More

Walked steep hill at night only but I can see the attraction, quaint with some pretty shops, cafes and pubs. It will no doubt look really festive when the Christmas Decorations go up.

We slowly wandered down the steep hill calling for afternoon tea in one of the many tea rooms(spoilt for choice) many of the shops are independently owned and had some very interesting and unusual items for sale. We wandered along the canal for a short way and then it was time to climb back up. Luckily there are quite a... More
