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.

Steep Hill is a delightful way to walk down to the city centre and has some wonderful privately owned shops and tea rooms. However, remember if you walk down it is a challenging walk back up!

And it certainly is but with the number of varied shops, eating places and reward of a nice pub at the top, its definitely worth the effort. Once in the main square, you then have the option of Lincoln Castle, the Cathedral or more shops / cafe's..................Enjoy !!

Like going back in time! Cobbled streets up an extremely steep hill with some very quaint, interesting and unusual shops. Lot easier going down than up but its an absolute must. When you get to the top you're greeted by the site of the castle and cathedral.

Does what it says on the tin, lovely place but hard to walk up and down. Loads of great pubs and eateries to choose from at the bottom and top.

This is a lovely place to visit, as it's name suggests very steep, so maybe not for the very elderly or infirm, but there are lots of tea shops along the way to rest a while and refresh. The street is lined with lots of lovely individual shops, an antique clock shop, boutiques, florists, a Potters shop where he throws... More
