Wear comfortable shoes for tackling this hill, which really is very steep. Just take your time whilst climbing it. There are seats at the top if you need them. And it's worth the climb because there are some fantastic shops at the top, not to mention both Lincoln Cathedral and Castle, both of which are well worth a visit.

It's steep and it's a hill. It's difficult to walk down and harder to walk up. Full of small shops selling alsorts of weird and wonderful. I have been to Lincoln a lot in the past and this is the first time I have walked the hill. Not in a hurry to do it again....ouch

Easy distance from both cathedral and castle. Lots of interesting tiny craft shops to pop into. Jewish houses to gain greater in depth knowledge of social living. black and white housing edge the cobbled streets. Leads to a public park and modern area. The canal walk is also well worth it if you'd like an added stroll. Many cafes and... More

Lovely cobbled street with quaint shops and cafés along the way. It was easier going down. Found it quite difficult coming up and on our second trip down got the bus back!

You have to climb Steep Hill to get to the castle, take a tip, catch the bus, nothing worth raving about on the hill, overpriced eateries, tacky gift shops and just touristy stuff.

Our third visit to Lincoln and we always make time to stagger up steep hill to visit the lovely cafes, curio shops and of course the castle and cathedral. Our accommodation was based half way up (or down) steep hill and heading out for the nightlife in high heels is a challenge but worth it!

It's amazing how many people think Lincolnshire is flat. Well we had family friends stay with us this week so took them to Step Hill for an afternoon out. By the time they got their breath back they were ready for a sit down and Bunting Tea Rooms was our first stopping place. By the time we had explored all... More

Steep Hill is really apt. Take it slow unless you are young and fit, it is tough over cobbles. Lots of little coffee places as you climb and there are some seats about halfway up, coming down is hard if you have joint problems.

The steepest of hills and on the way uphill to visit the Cathedral and the Castle you will pass 9th century buildings, including the Jews House, a fantastic example of medieval architecture and now home to a great restaurant. So many interesting shops and cafés, including Vintage Clothing. Test your fitness and run up Steep Hill!!! A Norman edifice fronts... More
