Great way to exercise!

Very steep hill joining Cathedral quarter to main town centre. Lots of small shops and tea rooms to visit en route. Walking down is simple; walking back up is great exercise!

Very steep hill leading to Lincoln Cathedral. Lots of unique restaurants and shops in quaint environment on the side of the street leading to the Cathedral. Well worth the effort.

Lots of independent shops in interesting street. Not one for anyone with mobility problems as it certainly is steep! Enjoyed the variety of shops as I come from place where large chains dominate. Plenty of places for tea and cakes and a sit down! Can carry on from bottom of hill into main town for Debenhams etc

(Please excuse the pun) No visit to Lincoln would be complete without a visit to Steep Hill. It really seems to capture the essence of Lincoln. Best of all, assuming you walk up it, you can enjoy your afternoon tea in one of the many charming establishments without feeling guilty having balanced your calories.

You need to be fit going up and down this hill but its worth the achievement in the end. You will need a drink once you get to the top

Lovely street with quirky & individual shops from vintage clothing to cup cakes but as the name suggests it is very Steep.
