It's not an original name but is indeed a steep walk up to the area where the entrances are to the castle and the cathedral, and it has a good selection of retail outlets and not too many coffee shops.

Steep Hill, is a beautiful cobbled lane leading down to the town centre and the high street shops. There are a lovely selection of shops along it. Half way are some seats which were always occupided by people of all ages coming up the hill. :) We were staying in a B&B up the hill past the Cathedral and used... More

How steep is Steep Hill! OMG had to stop for lunch half way, but lovely to browse in all the little shops. So quaint, just like stepping back in time. Super tea rooms and unique craft shops, just so cute!

As you would expect from the description, this is a steep walk between the cathedral area and the bottom of the hill where the chain shops and rail station are located. Full of lovely old buildings, good views up and down, and some nice quirky gift and clothes shops

One of those places I like to stick around and return every now and then. Full of character, some good places for a meal along the way, cobbled street very steeply uphill in places doesn’t make it easy to get to the Cathedral and Castle, but there are plenty of interesting small shops you go past; to stop and have...

Loved the cobbled streets, very picturesque. Although some shops seemed to sell the same things! Great wine shop!

A bustling shopper and sightseer filled medieval street. We saw it on a sunny summer Saturday lunchtime-early afternoon. There are many very good shops on and around Steep Hill that seems to be an essential artery of Lincoln. Near to it are many of the main historical and tourist attractions. Definitely a place to visit and browse the sights, walking... More

The street called Steep Hill is indeed steep. If infirm, it's almost certainly not for you but we enjoyed walking down it, and made it back up again. Lots of small and individual shops make it worth the walk; as you approach the city centre the usual brands take over and we turned round when we got to Primark (no... More

For able tourists the steep cobbled road is full of shops restaurants and bars... lots of history here too. A must see if you are in lincoln. Those less mobile would struggle with the ascent from the bottom of the hill but parking near the top of steep hill makes the cathedral quarter mostly acessible to all around the castle.
