The quaint cobbled street leading up to the magnificent Lincoln Cathedral is not called Steep Hill for nothing! So ….. breathe, browse the eclectic boutiques and bookshops, walk slowly up to the end and finally enjoy a cream tea in a lovely tea house.

Always a pleasure to walk up Steep Hill. Quaint shops on the way up, too many food choices to mention, tea shops, pie shops, bars etc. A tourists dream! We always start our wanderings in the modern shopping area at the bottom of Lincoln hill, then wander up to the Cathedral quarter and castle via Steep Hill. On the way... More

Lovely quaint road with beautiful old shops and cobbled streets. Well worth the walk. Yes it is very steep as you'd expect, not one to try in high heels either up or down!

Explore the quaint shops and enjoy the pubs along the way. Especially the Sam Smiths Cullens Well near to the top. £1.82 for a pint of bitter. Top value.

Very steep as the name implies but a lot of small independant retailers. Many interesting old buildings to see.

If you are looking for shops that are not found on a High Street, this is what you are looking for but as the name suggests, they are situated on the side of the hill that leads from the High Street up to the Castle and Cathedral. You can eat well in several places on the hill. Hand made chocolates,... More

Well as the name suggest it's a hill that is rather steep! It certainly gets the blood a'pumping around the body! But the walk is a must and as you keep climbing there are shops, pubs and tea rooms to peruse along the way! A quaint little walk with lots of things to look at also giving you chance for... More

A rare example of a fairly untouched historical street. There are plenty of picturesque old fashioned shops. If you need the high street familiars such as Starbucks, M&S, McDonalds, these are all available further down the town but you won't see any unsightly establishments on this street. As others have said it really is steep to go up and I... More
